Memorial Day - Honoring Those Who Served

Orin Edward Taylor
Orin is my only relative (as far as I know) who died in service to our country so he gets the top spot in this Memorial Day post. He enlisted at Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas on April 1, 1941, was a 1st Lt. with Company E of the 4th Ranger Battalion and died at the age of 24 on January 31, 1944 in Anzio, Italy during WW II. [1st Cousin, once removed]
