Happy Veteran's Day, Uncle Jerome. You were a member of the re-organized 69th Regiment and also a member of the US Navy. May we all recognize your contributions to the US side of things, and in your honour today, thank you for noble sacrifice in the Arctic 126 years ago.
You did not die in vain. And one day soon I will be hanging a banner over your cross that says "VINDICATED".
Your Great-Great Grandniece,
