David Frederick Sleeper
"Thank you for all your help and information. I am David's firstborn daughter
and also the eldest of 5 children ... 4 natural and 1 adopted. John (adopted), Ruthann(me), Darlene, Scott
and Lynn. I do not know much about my Dad. The photo was given to me by my father's 2nd
wife. He and my mom divorced when I was 2-3 years old. So I do not know when or where they were taken.
I had been researching my father and where he might be buried when I made a visit to Arlington Cemetery.
I had no idea he was there and cried when they said he was there. I am working on getting copies of his medals.
I would like them for my grandsons. Thanks again for your dedication. God Bless you!"
