Please attend to honor this soldier's brave service to our nation.
We had seven in the flag line at the funeral home today, all in cages. Thank you to all who came out to honor Mr. Koenig. Thankfully the rain quit as our staging period began.
Mr. Koenig's daughter came over to thank us for being there for her family and filled us in a bit on his service in SE Asia and elsewhere. She especially enjoyed the time the family spent in northern California when he was posted at The Presidio.
RIP Mr. Joseph A. Koenig. Thank you for your service to our nation.
