This is my mom's oldest brother, Uncle Forrest, who enlisted in the armed forces in 1941.

He was shipped overseas with the 161st Infantry WWII and their mission was to liberate the Philippines! He participated in three campaigns: Guadalcanal, Northern Solomones, and Luzon. He was awarded the silver star for gallantry and received a field commission from first sergeant to second lieutenant on the battlefield. He was in battle for 4 long years. In March of 1945 he was shot and killed by a sniper while he was leading his troops. The 161st infantry's mission was almost complete and he was only a few months away from seeing the end of the war.
