I have listed here in the next few pages some of the fighting men and crews who are buried in the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery Section E close by my stepbrother, Sgt George Demers, who is with the Thomas Crew at Site E179. I hope you will read their stories of patriotism, heroism and sacrifice.
 
If you are  planning to visit the Zachary Taylor National Cemetery in Louisville, Ky please print these pages and take them along on your visit. This will make your visit extremely  interesting as you move around Section E.
 
There are pages after the crews that will give readers interesting information about the planes these crews were flying.

Bill Copeland and Amos

This section would not be complete without recognizing the help and assistance of my friend  Bill Copeland. Bill has given me so much research advice as well as support and encouragement. He has played a part in every page on this site. Everyone who has met Bill knows his driving force is his ever constant best pal, Amos, a very loyal daschund. You will see Amos on pictures throughout this site.  

 

I appreciate the help of all these people for aiding in my research and I thank them all very much.

THEY GAVE THEIR ALL

 

Our veterans all answered our nations call
When our freedoms were put on the line,
They faltered not, but gave their all
From Omaha beach to the Rhine.

 

At Faid Pass and Corregidor
The odds proved to be too great,
The word surrender, a word we abhor,
So "Prisoner of War" was their fate.

 

They fought in the air, they fought on the ground,
They fought on the seas and below,
They battled at Midway and the Japs they did pound,
And our confidence was starting to grow.

 

At Sicily, Anzio, Salerno and Rome
They fought the cold, mud and rain,
At Cherbourgh they fought and thought about home,
Then blasted their way to the Seine.

 

At Tinian, Raboul and Guadalcanal
They mastered the mud and the heat,
At Kiska and Attu, more cold and fog,
They simply would not be beat.

 

When the last shots were fired, the white flags were flown,
And the last bomber called "Bombs Away",
They loaded the troupe ships and headed for home,
For that's where they wanted to stay.

 

We honor them now, as we do on these days
For answering the call to defend,
We honor the dead and the M.I.A.s,

Who gave their lives in the end.
