Y'all will just have to excuse me on this one but we've lost many
JARRELLs in our various Wars. This one is more personal to me. I
did not know, or know of Mont, but I was in Korea when he was killed.

My wife is so lucky I made it home<VBG>!

                     Mansfield News Journal
17 July 1952:

Private First Class Mont Jarrell, 26, former Mansfielder who has been
listed as missing in action, was killed as he was driving a truckload
of soldiers to the front lines in Korea.
