    To the Trauth family. My sympathies are with you. It was my pleasure to have met your dad and mom in Austin. I have so much respect for the magnanimous endeavor that our dads did in WWII. Their friendship is an example that we can overcome any differences we may have in our country. Your lose has effected us so much. May God bless Mr Trauth your mom and family.

    In memory of a great hero of WWII. Thank you sir for being a close friend and brother to my father, Eduardo Botello, your WW ll Brother. They shared some very scary moments together and survived something we will never go through because of them. May God Bless him and his family. Thank you sir for your superior service. From the Botello Family..
