Whom You Know covered this event in honor of Peachy's late grandfather (married to one of the Deegan girls in the pictures!), who was a highly decorated United States Marine Corps veteran of World War II, having served with distinction in the South Pacific area with the 3rd Marine Division, seeing harsh action in the following campaigns, Guadacanal, Bougainville and Guam, where he was twice wounded. Upon his return from the South Pacific, he established a business in memory of his brother Edward (President of his high school class who lived only 18 years) who was killed in action on Iwo Jima. He was a member of the Iwo Jima's Survivors Association, a founding member of the Iwo Jima Memorial in New Britain and a member of the VFW Post # 3272 in Avon, Connecticut. We wish you had the chance to meet him; he was buried with full Marine Corps Honors and we honor him and everyone who has served our country past, present and future.
