I’m planning to post veteran stories and pictures during the month of May. I’m looking for any WWI & WWII veterans from Mecklenburg County, Virginia. Above is a picture of Fannie Gray (born Mecklenburg, VA) with two of her sons. (born in Kankakee near Chicago). Fannie had 6 sons serve in WWII, all came home safely.
- Do you have a picture of this veteran in uniform?
- If not, do you have any picture of this veteran?
- Do you know any unit info? Or have you seen a draft card for them? ( I can easily help you find this if you haven’t)
- Do you know any places they served?
- Do you know any stories about this veteran? (at any time in their life?)
- (Note: If the veteran is still living, I will need to ask permission to post a picture of them)
I would like to post in the words of whoever is telling me the story. But if you don’t like that idea, I can write a draft. Then send it to you until it is the way you would like to see this posted. If you have stories & pictures to share, please email me this info.
