Veterans Day - Honoring Those Who Served


Orin Edward Taylor
Orin is my only relative (that I know of) who died in service to our country so he gets the top spot in this Veterans Day post. He enlisted at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas on April 1, 1941, was a 1st Lt. with Company E of the 4th Ranger Battalion and died at the age of 24 on January 31, 1944 in Anzio, Italy during WW II. [1st Cousin, once removed]
