Dear Friends,

Jim Sabean has revised our Attu Memorial Web Site.

It can be reviewed at:

There is but one way to bring this controversy to a successful conclusion once and for all. And that is to spread the word to everyone we know and ask that they sign the petition.

Please, may I ask that each and every one of you pass this on to all of your email contacts with a request to support this effort by signing the petition.

As of today, we have 164 petition signatures. I would like to see this number doubled or tripled, if at all possible, within the next month or so.

Let us all speak with one voice on behalf of the men who died in the Battle of Attu, 11-29 May 1943.

May their honor and memory be finally restored.

Sincerely and with respect,

Jack Jonas, TSgt, USAF (Ret)
