  1. I thought a note of remembrance to honor Joe Lippincott is necessary. My dad, like Joe, landed in Normandy (2nd wave), served under General George S. Patton, including fighting in both Ardennes and the Battle of the Bulge. They would not have known each other (I think) as my dad was infantry. Before the war my dad was a country western guitarist, singer and played backup for the Sons of the Pioneers a few times. He was wounded twice and awarded a Bronze Star.

    Sadly, my uncles had to tell me all of this after he passed in 1987. He never uttered one word to me – ever.

    Although saddened by your loss, his memories will live on forever through each of you in the family.

    RIP Hero!
