Today you would have been 76.

Dearest brother, thinking of you still brings a lump to my throat, even though it's been 53 years since you've been gone.
Every year I still go to Memorial Services in Grinnell where you were born and where you're laid to rest, by Mom and Dad.
I am a proud American because of your sacrifices. Still read your letter (Kathy posted it below) and pass it on to other vets. Even though in some circles it seem they think America/American is a dirty word. NEVER!
God has been good to me, I have 5 wonderful children who have many of your personality traits. Husband: Navy, Eldest son: Navy, Twins: Marines.
So proud of you. Your sister, Mary

Beloved brother

"Jimmie Joe" was his nickname as his father was also Robert. He was the eldest of thirteen children and a bit of a prankster. He loved life and lived it to the fullest. His dream was to return home and start a family with the girl he loved.
The last month of his tour he was very afraid. He said the always lived in fear 24/7. They mostly tried to find a way to live with it. He said in his letters he was afraid he wasn't coming home alive.
It's been over 50 years and people still come up to me and tell me of some of his escapades. I miss and love him so much.
In our hometown of Albia, Iowa they have put up a memorial honoring ALL servicemen. It is an honor to visit it. If you are ever in the area, I encourage you to stop and visit.
In loving memory, his sister, Mary
