Memorial Day 2020 -- May 25, 2020

On Memorial Day it is fitting and proper to remember the men and women who gave their lives, who continue to give their lives, to give us the country we deserve.

Captain Lloyd W Williams was commanding the 51st Company, 2nd Battalion, 5th Marines in the trenches on 03-June-1918. They supported French units during the Battle of Belleau Wood. A French officer told him to retreat. He replied "Retreat? Hell, we just got here!" Captain Williams was killed in action on 12-April-1918.

I took this photo on 14-December-2007 at the National Cemetery in the Presidio.
