|Definition Of A Veteran
|A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or is someone who, at one point in his or her
life, wrote a blank check up to and including their life.
That is Honor, and there are way too many people in this country who no longer understand it.

Memories of Reunions Past
Subject: Update on Nicholas Burde Jr. USS Bearss
Date: Mon, 12 Jun 2017 19:42:11 -0400
From: Mary Lou <email@example.com>a
My father, Nicholas Burde Jr., received your May newsletter, forwarded to his new address. Please
send future communications to:
Sunrise Living of Madison
215 Madison Ave., Apt. 233
Madison, NJ 07940
He and my mother had been living in Florida for many years. My mother, Constance Burde, passed
away on March 25th after a year of poor health. Not wanting to leave my father in Florida alone, we
moved him here to NJ to be near me.
My brother David lives in California, but we decided NJ would be a better fit for my Dad, since it is
where he grew up (Belleville) and where David and I were raised. He has a number of nieces and
nephews in the area who can visit from time to time, so that was a factor as well. I live with my
husband George in Chester, about a half hour from Madison.
Dad is getting along fairly well, though he needs the services available at Assisted Living. We felt
Sunrise of Madison offered the best place for him.
Although Dad will not be able to attend the reunion, I know he misses the opportunity to connect with
his shipmates. I'm not sure how active your organization is, but do keep him in mind in case there are
any folks in the area that would enjoy visiting with him. Dad was a USNA graduate, class of 1945.

|P.S. - Thank you so much for posting this information. I should have included Dad's email address as
well. He loves to receive e-mails. He can answer with a short message only, as his fingers are not
accustomed to typing! firstname.lastname@example.org
|6/19/2017 - Charlie McCon received this note from Betty Messmore the wife of Warren Messmore
one of our WWII members. Perhaps sending him a card would brighten his day.
