Honor your hero with thoughts, memories, images and stories.
Roy W. Brookshire was my oldest sibling. He died January 31, 1945( KIA ) one day before his 19th birthday. He was an army infantry soldier in Germany during WWII referred to as a replacement soldier, because he was sent to the front line to replace the ones dead or with severe frost bite. He endured the coldest winter on record there to fight for our freedom. He was a member of the 90th Infantry Division. My mom carried the pain of his loss to her grave in 1992. We all still love and miss you Roy. You are truly an AMERICAN HERO. He is buried in Germany.
