Mr. Myron Hewitt your legacy is a component of "The Greatest Generation" of our time. Every minute of the day from 1939 to 1945 was on loan from God and only selfless courage would repay that loan. In a day where heroes are hard to find society is now a little poorer with the inevitable loss of another veteran from the second great war...godspeed and an eternal salute.
