William Allen Hawthorne, fallen hero, you are not forgotten. You were from Kansas. Great state Kansas. I am also from the Midwest. Great people in the Midwest: hardworking, honest, loyal, kind. Southeast Iowa salutes you, honors you, remembers you. May you rest in peace and may those members of your surviving family have comfort. My sympathies. God is good all of the time, even when I don't understand just what he is up to or why things happen the way that they do. Your country and I thank you. by April Dayns RN Sacramento, CA.
