  • Rank During: Ship Serviceman Third Class
  • U.S. Navy
  • United States
  • 7th Fleet Flagship
  • USS Iowa

My soldier entered the US Navy at the age of 19 and was honored to have had the opportunity to serve his country. While on board the USS Iowa, he was a barber and also served in the “ice cream shop” and laundry. After his honorable discharge in 1953, he enrolled in Bible college and later served as a pastor in the states of Tennessee, New Mexico and Mississippi.

His love for service to others continued until he lost a battle with brain cancer. Up until he could no longer talk, all he wanted to do was to witness to others about his love for Christ. He was a true soldier in every aspect.
