A Rememberence

Dear Leroy Borst,
I never really thought about Soldiers and the very high amount of people who risk there lives by fighting in the War until i learned about it just a few days ago by my Social Studies teacher, so i decided to learn more about the Soldiers and veterans who fought and died in the war. Many people think that war is a happy thing that our country should take pride in it but it really isn't in my point of view because no one deserves to fight for there country and then die. Because no that is not happy, well it can be it depends on how you interpret it. It can be happy because you fought fighting for your country and it can be bad because your life has been shortened for many years in some cases. So I really appreciate you and all the other soldiers.

Thank You so much,
Linsey Borst

Thank You

Dear Leroy,
I am a student from Gridley High School located in Gridley, IL. We are posting remembrances for a class project and to honor those that paid the ultimate sacrifice. This project is the Gridley High School Posting Project.
I am indebted to you for your service to this nation. You fought to the death because of the beliefs that you knew this nation stood for. You fought for all those that you knew. But most importantly, you fought for yourself and your band of brothers. Thank you for your fighting. You were a great soldier. Illinois is proud to call you one of its finest soldiers.
