In Honor Of for William Reed, Navy, Honored by Fort Sam Houston National Cemetery

William Reed, Navy
In Honor of my father and all those who left home while still in high school to put their life on the line for this great country. He was 17, had been the man of the family since he was 7. He had never been out of his home state and hardly out of his hometown. He went to the Pacific and did what he had to do, and made many lifelong friends.
