All the above servicemen and women share their genetic heritage with the 5 SABLE descendants [Namnik], and their 13 children. There are probably others who also served but the MY HERITAGE Family Tree lacks postings from extended family.

TO ALL THE MEN AND WOMEN, THOSE WHO SERVED AND THOSE WHO WAITED AT HOME, WE SAY “THANK YOU” FOR YOUR SACRIFICES: ALL TO KEEP THIS COUNTRY FREE FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS.

MAY YOUR GENEROUS SOULS REST IN PEACE IN THE HOME THAT JESUS HAS PREPARED FOR US ALL.
