On Memorial Day We Remember

We miss you every day, Francis.

Following a 16-month tour in Afghanistan, Francis redeployed
to Fort Drum in June 2007 and was home in Kansas
for a cookout a couple of weeks later.

Today's your birthday, Francis!

We miss you today and every day!

Then it flames up and warms us."
