A Tribute To A World War II Soldier March 30, 2017

Filed under: Ancestors,Veterans Day,World War II — Janet @ 7:30 pm

In researching my genealogy I’ve come across a record of a very distant relation who served in the Air Force in World War II.  Maybe he isn’t related at all, the connection is pretty tenuous, but all the same I feel especially moved and want to acknowledge his service and sacrifice.  He was PVT Sage Harden Upshaw, born in 1912 in Georgia, died on June 3, 1944 in England.  Just before D-Day on June 6, 1944.  He is buried in the Cambridge American Cemetery in Cambridge England.  He was the son of William Upshaw who married my father’s sister, Myrtle.  Sage was a son by a previous marriage.
