TO OUR VETERANS PRESENT AND PAST: I SALUTE YOU!

TO OUR VETERANS PRESENT AND PAST: I SALUTE YOU. . . EVERY ONE OF YOU!

And with special thanks, appreciation and pride, I salute:

My grandfather, Adolph Statter, born in Austria and brought to the US by his family in the early 1870’s, joined the US Army, Maryland Company F Unit, 1 Maryland Infantry to fight in Teddy Roosevelt’s Spanish American War in 1898. God Bless the Immigrants!

My grandfather, Adolph Statter, right, with my grandfather, Philip Beber standing in front of his furniture store named for himself!

My father, Jacob Leonard Beber, US Army Infantry, was a highly decorated WWII hero having received the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Distinguished Service Medal, Sharp Shooters Medal, French Fougere for his service in France, and a case full of other medals that I need a list to discern! Here’s a photo. See if you know what all the medals are for! The ribbon and medallion came with a big book about his army division and its mission in Europe.

And I salute my mother, Bertha, “Bootsie” to family and “Betty to more distant friends” Statter Beber Danzinger for her service as “Rosie the Riveter” who built bomber planes during WWII at Glenn L. Martin Company in Baltimore and checked serial numbers in the news each time a US fighter plane went down to make sure it wasn’t one she worked on building! Happily, none of the ones with her fingerprints were brought down!

This four-generational  photo of  my mother, Rosie the Riveter Bootsie Statter Beber Danzinger, left, on her 88th birthday with me, right, and her granddaughter, Tara Jacqueline Abrams Jacobs, and great-granddaughter Piper Lily Grace Jacobs when she was almost 3 months old! Can you imagine her with her welding tool building airplanes to contribute to the war effort during WWII?

My cousin Jerome “Jerry” Sachs served in Korea in the Air Force and so many uncles and cousins served our country well.He looked very sharp in his Air Force uniform! I wish I had that photo which my aunt, Hannah, cherished. But this is Jerry today:

I salute those here and long since gone, always remembered every day but especially today.
