“Uncle Kenny was in the Marines and was killed during the Vietnam War while in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba in 1965. He was diffusing land mines and his buddy stepped on one and a piece of shrapnel went through Uncle Kenny’s heart. He was killed 2 days before his 22nd birthday, 11-11-43. Died 11-9-75. Always wonder who he’d be today."
