|About the Mission:||
We have been requested by the family of Frank luksa to participate in his military honors funeral. As part of the Greatest Generation, Frank served aboard the Naval Destroyer, the USS Herndon (DD-638) as a Boatswain’s Mate 2nd Class in World War II. The “Lucky” Herndon was the lead ship for all the Allied forces in the invasion of Normandy on D-Day on June 6, 1944. Frank had a “birds-eye” view of the entire invasion from the upper deck while successfully bombarding targets ahead of the first assault waves. The Herndon continued to serve tirelessly in the Atlantic and Pacific and escorted President Franklin D. Roosevelt to the historic Yalta Conference.
A portion of this narrative was obtained from the White-Van Buren Funeral Home obituary.
