In Memoriam
by Della C. for JOE CLAYTON CASTLE, Army, SGT. MAJ., Passed On 12/03/11, Honored by Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery

Placing this remembrance wreath to honor the service of my Uncle Joe who was a soft spoken gentleman who valiantly served in the U.S. Army while stationed in Europe and Africa during World War II. He was a wise man with integrity and a gentle manner. I truly miss him and also Aunt Aino. So thankful for the special memories of both of them times we shared.
