tember 9, 1943, the 36th Division made the first invasion of the European mainland at Salerno.

Before dawn they fought their way ashore, and during that day Lt. Dale Cleveland was killed.

His body was returned from Italy, now resting in the small Acton Cemetery in Hood County, Texas.

Aunt Cat later remarried and lived a full life with children and grandchildren in South Carolina.

They’re all members of someone’s family. Some left children, many were too young to marry, almost children themselves.

Some are remembered by aging siblings or are only vaguely sketched out characters by middle-aged relatives.

Some have no one left to remember them. An odd thought on a holiday of remembrance.
