  • Reuben was born November 23, 1912 in Jefferson County, TN and died during the Battle of the Bulge on January 30, 1945. He lost his brother on the USS Cooper on December 3, 1944 less than two months before he was killed in action. My grandfather suffered a great loss during the war, losing both his sons in a short period of time. They are both my heroes and I have taken it upon myself to make sure their memory remains and that others realize the sacrifice that is made by our military. They are fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters, and even though I never got to meet my uncle he was still just that, my uncle. I love him and I am proud of him for his bravery and sacrifice so that we may live in the land of the free!
