Veteran’s Day


9 April 1945

Mr. Dale Myers
Hamilton, Il

Dear Mr. Myers:

….In regard to the death of your brother Lawrence W. Myers, 36303536, S/Sgt. who died of gun shot wounds on 16th March: the men said of him “he always played the game” and was a good organizer to get teamwork in whatever he did. They think of him as “one who did more than his share” at all times. He is buried in USAF Cemetery Zamboanga, which is carefully tended by the Phillippinoes for the United States government…..

Very sincerely,
Vincent B. Appleton
Chaplain, AUS
