Thanks to Richard W. Johnson, we have compiled a listing of over 240 men and women who served in the military and have ties to Frankford. Below is a video with the names.
If you look at the names as they scroll by, you can’t help but notice that many families sent more than one son or daughter into the service. That is quite a sacrifice for those families who saw their kids go off into an uncertain and at times dangerous future. There are 3 on our list who lost their lives in the line of duty. There are, no doubt, many who returned injured in body and soul. Everybody comes back different.
To the veterans, we thank you for your service. To the families, thank you for your sacrifice.
