Our childhood neighbor iacountryrose@msn.com

Carl lived next door to our family until the age of 13. Family of Clarence & Rosemary Fessler, Larrabee, IA We cherish the childhood memories and would love to hear from any of his family. Knowing him taught us many valuable lessons, we were priviliged to have known him. He is not forgotton. Even though he was sent to a childrens home in Davenport, IA we have had his name placed on our Cherokee County wall of veterns names. He was born here and we feel he served for us too. - Thank you Carl. Posted by: Bill, Linda and Betty -Fessler children Email: iacountryrose@msn.com

Thank you Marine for your dedication, loyalty, and duty to our nation and to our Corps...

THE WALL

Standing here in front of the Wall
silently reading your name
solemnly I thank you one and all
Each of you different, yet the same

The list seems forever endless
but I remember your faces
you made the supreme sacrifice, I confess
as I walk slowly with measured paces

Each one of you answered the call
willingly or not, you gave your lives
Rest easy, my Brothers - heroes all
The Nation still survives


"War drew us from our homeland

In the sunlit springtime of our youth.

Those who did not come back alive remain

in perpetual springtime -- forever young --

And a part of them is with us always."

--- Author Unknown ---

God Bless  You
