A Day for Honoring Veterans

November 11th, 2010

Oscar H. Woodward, Jr., was a member of the U.S. Marine Corps during World War II. I remember how handsome he appeared in that magnificent uniform. I also remember that when he was home on furlough he would count out pennies to purchase bubble gum. The bubble gum family contests were so much fun, e.g. until my Mom used kerosene to get the gum off our faces, hair, and clothing ;-) .

My cousin, Bill (son of Richard and Irish (Ford) Woodward, and my brother, Peter served in the Army during the Berlin Crisis.

My great grandfather, Daniel Russell Woodward severed in Company E of the 16th New Hampshire Regiment during the Civil War.
