Memo 2:
SSGT Paul E. Calkin 01/12/24 -06/12/2019

Today I lost the greatest man I have ever known. He was the BEST FATHER, GRANDFATHER, GREAT GRANDFATHER, FRIEND, Some say he was a hero, He told me the heros arethe ones that didn't come back. He served in US Army Air Corps during WWII. He was a wing gunner on B-17, at Thorpe Abbotts England with the 100th Bomb Group. He flew 30 missions, came back home and was sent to the 463rd Bomb Group in Foggia Italy. He was inducted into Arkansas Veterans Hall of Fame. He received France's Highest Honor, He received France's Legion of Honor Award. He received numberous medals, during WWII. Me became a Master Mason at the age of 92. He was a GREAT MAN. He was a mentor and friend to so many and loved by anyone who was lucky enough to meet him. He is now in HEAVEN where he belongs. Dad I LOVE YOU so much and you will be greatly missed here on earth...David Calkin
