Eternal Love…

This touching story reminds me of a song by Firehouse – ‘Love of a Lifetime’ . The words go like this…

Have you heard of a Love of a lifetime?

A love to last my whole life through….

WW2

Wedding of US Marine and Medal of Honor recipient John Basilone   and Marine Sergeant Lena May Riggi. Shortly after, Basilone shipped out to the Pacific and fought on Iwo Jima where he was killed in action. Lena Basilone never remarried and died at the age of 86.
