Isaacson, Leonard

My name is Gregg Isaacson.  I'm sad to inform you that my father, Leonard Isaacson, passed away on Friday the 11th of May 2007.  He served in the Korean War and was a man very proud of serving his country.  The honor guard came to the cemetery and their presence meant a lot to my entire family, especially my dad.  Please pass this information on for me.  Thank you and all who served this great country, past and present.
