Tate the Great Part V

The final article in a series that spotlights my GreatUncle Tate Bower and his service during WWII

In 2002, Tate was interviewed in great detail about his experience in the war. The researcher was Herndon Inge of Mobile, AL. And you can follow the link to find out more about Inge and his feature in the Ken Burns documentary The War.

Tate was also presented with these custom made shadow boxes that proudly display his most treasured WWII surplus and medals

Our family continues to respect and admire Uncle Tate. He has such a genuine personality and is just a joy to conversate. Our thoughts and prayers are with Tate as he struggles through some health problems. I'd like to tell Tate the Great that we deeply appreciate his service for our country when we needed him most.

Veteran's Day, Nov. 11th as we celebrate our freedom, my thoughts will be with Uncle Tate. Find out how a shoe store keeper in Kansas campaigned to have Armistice Day turned into Veterans Day here. and another easy to read article about Armistice Day here
