    A good friend of mine has passed away recently, below is his obit. I have known this man since I was a young boy, but only learned of his WWII service aboard USS North Carolina in the Pacific Theatre. Unfortunately I was unable to speak with him in depth about his service. I hope to learn more about him from his family and wife in the coming months.
    Rest in peace Mr. Wallace.

    Be at peace, Mr. Wallace. Thank you for your service. :S!

    Several years ago, I was in Wilmington, NC and had the pleasure of touring the USS North Carolina. If you have the opportunity, it's well worth it.
