Two Sisters Remember Their Brother James Dankowski

James Dankowski was a soldier from Mackinac Island but also lived most of his years in Cleveland, Ohio. He attended Sacred Heart Catholic School in Cleveland through 8th grade. Sometime later James moved with his Mother Fran Dankowski to Mackinac Island. Here James graduated from Mackinac Island High School.
There are currently two pictures of James on his VVMF page. The first is his service picture in uniform. This same picture is also on display in the veterans room of the Stuart House City Museum at Mackinac Island. James is pictured in the room with other fallen soldiers of the Island. The veterans room opened in 2009. The second picture was taken of James with his Mother Fran on the left and his Grandmother Sophie Traska in the middle.
The pictures were provided by two of James' Sisters- Caroline McGreevy and Rita Hudec, both of Ohio. In 2013, Caroline and Rita attended a commemoration on the Island. Every Memorial Day the Mother of a fallen soldier is honored with a floral wreath. James' Mother had already passed away so the daughters accepted the wreath in their Mother's absence.

Remembering An American Hero

Dear SP4 James Hillary Dankowski, sir

As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

Curt Carter
