Re: Dedication of Memorial to Group Commander Col Thomas J.J. Christian
I just saw this message. My father served under Col Christian in the 361st and I am glad to know that Col. Christian will be honored in this way. I have heard from my father that he was such a fine man and good leader.
I just wanted to ask: Is any Group member or Group relative is traveling from San Antonio to Austin for the ceremony? If so, could you please email me separately? firstname.lastname@example.org
My father lives in San Antonio. Unfortunately, I live out of state, so will not be able to attend.
