The Venture Scouts have been making copies of a book to honor all our Fallen military with a Simsbury connection over the past couple of weeks. The books will be presented to various town groups on Veterans Day next month.
But the scouts still need your help. One service person from World War II is still a mystery. His name is Thomas Graham. His name was listed as a casualty of the Second World War in the May issue of the 1945 Farmington Valley Herald. His name is also on the WWII Honor Roll inside Eno Hall as a casualty of the war. In researching the name, the scouts have only reached dead ends.
THE SCOUTS NEED YOUR HELP!
If anyone can give some light about Thomas Graham during World War II, the information would help complete the book. As generations pass the names will just be that, a name. The scouts from Troop 76 believe we need to have a face to the names. People should know who they were. They made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom and should never be forgotten.
Thanks to the help from the Simsbury Patch, since our last article all but Thomas Graham have been identified. If anyone has information about Thomas Graham, please email to, email@example.com.
“This is a project that is long overdue,” states Mark Holowesko, Troop 76 adult advisor for the Troop 76 Venture Scout’s project.
