(Submitted May 26, 2009 by Nancy Kay Dustin-McDonald)

2009 Veterans Day; I'm  now 50 years old & know so many family members who have chose (or been drafted) to PROUDLY serve our country. But the Uncle I never got to meet (also the brother my Dad & Grandma & Aunt lost) Douglas Dustin gave his life at the tender age of 18. I think often of how my Grandma, Dad & Aunt must have suffered & what my entire family had to miss knowing the only brother of our Daddy! As I've learned much more of this horrific war; I'm so proud of my Dad, Brother, Son-in-Law & all men who have given their lives: (But Uncle Doug;your niece Nancy who is 50 now, will meet you some day & my Dad (Glenn Dustin, Marines & my only brother, also Glenn Douglas Dustin, Army). I sob today reading of the Korean War. I know Douglas, Dustin & both Glenn Dustin's are the hero's in my life! I'm so very proud of my only son-in-law Anthony Good, Army MN, Iraq. My vote's in honor of Douglas Dustin.
