We are deeply saddened by the loss of our friend and fellow Compatriot, Frank Dorsey of the Andrew Lewis Chapter. Our prayers and thoughts go out to the family and many friends in the community of Huntington, especially the Staff of the VAMC.
Frank was the epitome of the “Greatest Generation”, dedicating his senior years to the care and service of his fellow Veterans. He was a true American Hero having served in the Marines at Iwo Jima during World War II. His patriotic attitude and devotion to duty was an inspiration to us all. He will certainly be missed.
“All is well, Safely rest, God is nigh”
Rest in Peace, Patriot Frank Dorsey
