Military Monday: WWII Veterans

Last week I mentioned the Honor Roll at my church – the Holy Ghost Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Coatesville. Our Honor Roll plaque is in the back of the church and was originally created for those who served in World War II but has added the wars and our soldiers since then.

Today, I’d like to introduce you to our World War II veterans. The three marked with an * are the three who were Killed In Action (KIA).

The Honor Roll also notes six veterans from the Korean War, eight from Vietnam, one from the Gulf War, and one from Iraq. The six Korean War veterans are: Robert L Barlow, Jr., Richard P Curry, George L Degnan, John Horblinski, Walter Maskula, and John Max. The eight listed (there are more) who served in Vietnam are William F Bigar, John L Dmytryk, Gary Handoe, Thomas P Kish, George Nolan, Teddy Ruzchak, Jr. (my cousin), Robert Timozek, and Wes Hatch. Our lone Gulf War veteran is Mark Teijaro and our lone veteran from Iraq is Jayme Houck.
