Sentimental Sunday: Military Memories - Remembering for Memorial Day

I took a two-part story I wrote about six months ago for this blog, on Corporal Earl Emerson Jackson (1905-1943), an Army Air Forces weatherman who lost his life during World War II, and turned it into an article for Jackson's hometown newspaper, the Athens Daily Review, here in Texas.  It was published yesterday - on the front page of the first section!

Here is a link to the story:  Thanks to editor Chad Wilson for publishing my piece!
