The Columbarian Wall in the Prescott National Cemetery where my father, Rex Hoover, Sr., is interred. He was in the U.S. Navy during WWII on the ship the U.S.S. Helena - in 7 major sea battles in the Pacific arena.
My father was also at Pearl Harbor, on the Helena, on December 7, 1941.
Thought I would post this on such an historic day (the inauguration of Barack Obama) as my father was one of "The Greatest Generations" and I have hope that his great-grandchildren will take up the torch and become another "Great Generation".
