Hubert Aaron in the Texarkana Gazette today

Posted on by 0 comment

My wonderful cousin Nedra sent me this news clipping today and had my website been working properly, I would have posted it earlier.

As you all know, today is the anniversary of the bombing of Pearl Harbor, and the anniversary of Hubert Aaron’s death as he was aboard the U.S.S. Arizona.  The Texarkana Gazette did a wonderful story on him today so I thought I would share it with all the cousins like me who don’t have access to the newspaper.

This is a really good photo that the paper ran with the article and here is the article:

A friend of mine posted on Facebook that there are two people in this world that are willing to give their life for you. Jesus and an American Solider. I believe she is right.

So thank you to Hubert for your sacrifice and to all the other soldiers that died on that day, and any other day in history that they made the ultimate sacrifice for our country, so that we can all enjoy our freedom.  You are NOT forgotten.

Thank you to Allen Webb for identifying this photo of my 3rd great-grandmother, Sarah “Sallie” Ann Courtney, who married my 3rd great-grandfather, Henry Washington Martin, and then later married George Pill after Wash Martin passed away.

 

I guess posting these unidentified photo’s really is worth it.   So exciting!!

Look for more coming up soon.
