Kenneth Parker Shasteen

My Uncle, Private First Class Kenneth Parker Shasteen, joined the Marine Corps and served our country until May 5th, 1968 in Quang Tri, South Vietnam. He was 19 years old when he died.

"To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with lots of pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations."

- President Woodrow Wilson
Armistice Day, November 11, 1919

    Very nice sketch...have seen this photo many times in my father's yearbook. They joined the Marines together. Really well done.
