Veterans Day 2019

While Veterans day is a day to honor all Veterans, there are two who I especially wish to honor  Louis Radlof and Clarence Radloff.

Louis Radlof was killed in action sometime between 1045 and 1055 on the 11th of November 1918...  15 to 5 minutes before the war to end all wars ended.

Louis Radlof, PVT, serial number 4005514, killed in action at the age 24 years, 6 months, 16 days after serving 3 months, 17 days in the U.S. Army.

Clarence served in WWI in a Trench Mortar Battalion and while he returned home, he passed away at the age of 32, possibly from service connected medical conditions.

Their story as we know it today:   Louis and Clarence Radloff

So on 7 Jun I went to Reading Airport for the WWII Weekend - WOW!!! For 2020, the page is already up at:

Not only the planes but the hundreds of re-enactors with their vehicles, tents, and equipment. Here are some of the pictures and videos.
