Wesley J. Albert April 21, 1928 -- June 16, 2009

I just returned from my Father in law's funeral. He was a true example of "The Greatest Generation"; The third child of eighteen, He fought in Italy in WW2 as a member of the Army Air Corps and in Korea as a member of the newly formed Air Force. He retired as an E-7 after twenty years of service and then began his second career as a salesman for Sears, retiring for the second time after twenty years service. He and his wife of 54 years, Hazel, had three children, Lila, William, and Iris, and five grandchildren, Amber, April, Mariah, Anna , and Erin and two Great Grandchildren.

Wesley was born in Carabou, Maine, to Eugene and Eva Albert. He grew up on the family potato farm. He entered the Army Air Corps after Pearl Harbor. It was a family legend that he was the first one ever to wear the Air Force blue uniform because a quartermaster mix-up had resulted in all the uniforms ordered being made size small, and he was the only one in the first unit that was small enough to wear it.

He was a true Patriot in the real meaning of the word and he will be sorely missed by everyone that knew him.

I found your post to be straight forward and right on. When I've got some time later I'll write a more in depth comment with my own thoughts on the topic, but for now..good job!

You've got a academic way of writing which I don't frequently see. Just thought I'd let you know :D
