Thank you, Keith.  The military categories are complicated.  Did you perhaps read his bio and maybe add categories for this veteran?
I created a ship war category and moved him to that, and changed lost at sea to killed in action
Keith, thank you, again.  I so wanted this young man to have the proper tribute.
I’d like to add my thanks to Keith who is constantly helping everyone with these categories!!! Thanks so much from the Military and War Project!!
