Age 27 yrs. 3 mos. 15 days.
Dear little flag with a golden starThe following is from a letter dated February 5, 1934, from "War Department, Washington D.C." to "F.L. Garner, Seward, Nebraska" (thought to be William's brother Fred Garner):42
Stands for a son that's gone afar,
Stands for a sweetheart that's gone afar,
Who gave his life for the red, white and blue--
For the noblest cause we ever knew.
May the stars and stripes of Old Glory wave
O'er the grave of our dear one true and brave.
