For Memorial Day a couple of friends and I decided to go to Sampson Veterans Memorial Cemetery to pay our respects. While in the area we saw the Sampson WWII Museum sign and decided to go through it. While there I realized my father might have gone there for training. When I got home I found his Sampson Company 160 photo from February 29, 1944. His name was Edmund F. Landwersiek and he served in the Philippines during WWII on PT Boat 324, Ron 21. He passed away four years ago and was proud to have been in the Navy but rarely talked about the war. I followed in his footsteps and served in the Navy also. Thank you, the Sampson WWII Museum and the Sampson Memorial Cemetery for keeping the memories alive.
