On the 5th of May 2013 I received the following comment on Paul’s Post: I am SGT(posthumously) Paul F. Weber’s Niece US.ARMY RET Leslie Jones(Weber) Johns Daughter, My Uncle Paul was Killed before I knew him. This man and His Brother,my Father John Weber were the reason I joined the US.ARMY in 1999. I have some picture’s from when I went to the memorial to see his name I traveled to Dc in the winter of 2006 December to be exact and I found his name on the wall.. My Then Fiancé at the time a SGT. B.Baker(KIA)OIF etched his name from the wall and made a shadow box of it , I recently gave my father my flight wings to replace my Uncle’s. I have some pictures you might like.
