Remembering The Boys of Praha, Texas....for Veteran's Day

 
In a space of 1 year and 9 days, during World War II,
 Praha, Texas, a small community of 100,
lost most of its young men.
 
 
Nine young men, listed on this monument,
were never to return home to live out a full life.
 
 
With their deaths,
a generation of young men were lost. 
 
 
 
All but Pvt Eddie Sbrusch, who was lost at sea,
were brought back home,
 to rest here.....

A special note:
Every year there is a wonderful Veteran's Day Remembrance
held in Praha Texas.
 
It is very special,
including a fly-over of vintage aircraft
 with a flower drop over the cemetery.

    1. I do realize there are thousands and thousands of stories similar to this one. This small community still remembers and honors those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

  3. I hope you and yours had a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and are having a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. May we display your header on our new site directory? As it is now, the site title (linked back to its home page) is listed, and we think displaying the header will attract more attention. In any event, we hope you will come by and see what is going on at SiteHoundSniffs.com.
