I read about Warren Crim and was moved by the story, his service, and his sacrifice. May he rest in peace and glad he was finally able to make it home. His remaining family unlikely knew him or knew him well , but rest assured many of us now know of him and our prayers go out to all. Fred Wagner, Houston, Texas formerly Tulsa, Oklahoma.
