ABOUT THE MISSION:
We have been requested to participate in Honoring the WWII Service of Kenneth A. Young of East Aurora. This is a unique Mission. Mr. Young passed away in 2005, and his family has had custody of his urn. Unfortunately, his wife Mary Louise Young was tragically killed in an auto accident this past weekend. Her Mass of Christian Burial will be this coming Tuesday in East Aurora, with burial in Lakeside Cemetery Field of Valor, Hamburg. The PGR will be waiting at the Cemetery with a Flag Line, because Mr. and Mrs. Young will be interred together. VFW Post 1419 will also participate in rendering Military Honors. Mr. Young served in the U.S. Army from 1944-1946 as a Surgical Technician, including time with the 242nd General Hospital Unit in the European Theater of Operations from December, 1944 - August, 1945, including the Rhineland Campaign.
