On behalf of Turnbow-Higgs American Legion Post 240 I express condolences to the family and friends of James T. 'Pete' Grundy. I last saw Pete at the November of 2018 Huckabay ISD veterans appreciation day. His family had accompanied him to this event and he was proudly adorned in his American Legion garrison cap. A patriot to the end, Pete struggled to stand but with the help of family he stood and saluted the flag when presented and continued to stand for the singing of National Anthem. Pete was a WWII Navy Veteran and his passing reduces the number of WWII American Legion Post 240 veterans to 4. Nationally, we're losing 360 per day of 'OUR GREATEST GENERATION' of WWII veterans. The Commander of all creation has called James T. 'Pete' Grundy to Post Everlasting. Anchors away sailor, and THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE! - Roger Easter
