TERRY, SAMUEL W
My dad was Samuel W. Terry he was captured as part of the D Day (June 6, 1944) invasion while running communication cable in an area which was supposed to be secure. He spent 9 months in a German P.O.W. camp. He passed away December 26th 1976 (he was only 55). I would like everyone to give a lot of thought to what we were and are fighting for and realize that a lot of people have sacrificed for us to be here, my dad gave 9 months of his life, many gave more. I would appreciate any recognition you could give him.
