My Great-uncle Jon Micheal Farner fought for our Country out of bravery and honor.
His name today is on the Wall of great soldiers who fought and died for our country and our freedom.
I remember learning about our Vietnam war in grade school. I went home and told my father about what I had learned ... he told me I had a great-uncle who fought and died for our country. A few years later we visited the Moving Wall near our home town. I found out there was so many men and women who had fought and died. Then I saw my uncle's name. I felt like crying and I had knots in my stomach. It was just then that I realized a what a great man he was. Please, if you have any information please email me. I want to know more about him.
With great respect and thanks for his sacrifice, from a former DeSoto, Illinois, resident.
