Mr. Larson, thank you for your service and sacrifice for our country. May you rest in peace.
I concur completely with JohnG1 comments. It is difficult to know what to say, but it is important for the family to know that there are many us who feel indebted to the bravery of Mr. Larson and those like him.
Mr. Larson may have not considered himself 'heroic' since during the horrendous Death March it likely came down to self-survival and a will to simply stay alive. However, he and all the others that were willing to serve and place themselves in perilous, life or death situations, such as being a prisoner of war in which unspeakable acts were perpetrated against other human beings makes these men "heroic" whether or not they considered themselves to be so. Peace be with you Mr. Larson.
