SSG. William H. Harmon
This is a military picture of my Daddy, William H. Harmon. It hung in our living room(s) as long as I can remember.
After the death of my father, my brother made a copy of the original for me...I then made copies for my other siblings, my children & grandchildren, and my family album.
An 8 x 10 of this photo now hangs in my own living room.
In 1968, when his hometown (Parkersburg, WV)paper did an article on his service, they used this photo.
My daddy was my hero. He served in both the Air Force and the Army.
He served two tours in the Korean Conflict and two tours in the Viet Nam War.
He was shot in the back of the head during his 2nd tour in Viet Nam & rec.'d the Purple Heart.He was very proud of his service and so am I.
