We never met...

But I discovered you and your brother Tom (Tom if you’re reading this, hello!) recently through an online data search. We are second cousins. I want to thank you both for your service.

Navy and Marine Corps Medal Citation

CITATION:
The President of the United States of America takes pride in presenting the Navy and Marine Corps Medal (Posthumously) to Aviation Boatswain's Mate Airman William Lee (NSN: B-517679), United States Navy, for heroism on 29 July 1967, while serving aboard U.S.S. FORRESTAL (CVA-59). When a fire-swept through bomb-laden aircraft on the flight deck, Airman Lee ran to the nearest fog/foam station and attempted to bring the hose to bear on the burning aircraft. As he neared the plane, he was fatally injured when a bomb detonated.
