Patriot Guard and associates,

Sadly we are called to stand for Fredrick Murkland who served our country honorably in the U.S. Navy serving during World War II,may he rest in peace.

Immediately after his 1943 graduation Mr. Murkland joined the U.S. Navy and plunged into World War II. His service in Guam, 1943-46, included duties on two hospital ships where he was a pharmacist’s mate third class, and on a minesweeper.  He earned the U.S. Navy WWII Victory Medal; USN American Area Medal; USN Asiatic Pacific Area Medal; US Navy Good Conduct Medal; and a letter of commendation. He was very proud of his USN service, of having earned his “dolphins” and of letters received after the war from Admiral James Forrestal.

 

We will provide a Flag Line at the cemetery.

 

Sr. RC Jack Casey  will be RCIC and have flags on site.
