Robert  Ashworth Jr.

Recently I brought my grandaughter to the honor roll to show her my uncle's name. It was not there. As a graduate of Somerville high I saw his name many times.
His name was THOMAS ASHWORTH. He was killed in the Normandy invasion.He lived at 23 Melvin St. If you require more information mail me.
I would like to get this corrected for my next visit to the honor roll with my grandaughter. Please mail me when it is corrected.
Thank You
Robert K. Ashworth Jr.

John F McCarthy

I had the opportunity to visit the memorial again earlier this year, many thanks to all involved in it's restoration. The names of my grandfather Jerimiah P McCarthy, US Army, and my father Jerome J McCarthy, US Navy, are listed on this memorial. They are now deceased. Both men were only sons serving in the same war in the South Pacific, Grandad in the Philipines and Dad in Okinawa. Both made it back home in one piece, Thank God. John Fitzgerald McCarthy US Navy
