Tombstone Tuesday – Robert McCormack

Robert Michael McCormack

Robert Michael McCormack [1]

Robert Michael McCormack is my second cousin once removed. I never met him since he died two years before I “found” his branch of the family again. As his marker states, he was a captain in the Army Air Forces during WWII and in the Air Force during Korea. According to one of his sons, he flew P-51 Mustangs (one of my favorite airplanes of all time!). He is buried, along with his wife, Jewel, in Greenlawn Memorial Park in Groves, Texas. Here is a picture of Robert;
