This wonderful family continues to set such a fine example of the fruits of the Greatest Generation.
A personal note to Curtis Diles - They truly do not make them like you anymore, but people such as your children and grandchildren give us hope.

"Yesterday was a beautiful day to visit Dad’s grave and to honor and remember his service and the sacrifice of all who valiantly fought for our freedom.
"Thank you Serbian Chetniks and Serbian villagers from the bottom of our hearts. We are forever indebted to you."
