I know my grandfather would be proud of me as the only female to follow in his footsteps to serve in the
United States Army.
I am proud to publicly honor him and the sacrifices he made in service to our country. We called him Papa, a term of endearment. While reaching the rank of sergeant in an infantry regiment during the 1800s, I cannot imagine the conditions under which he served nor the struggles he endured to reach that rank.
I have so many fond memories of Papa.
With all due honor and respect to my dear grandfather, Papa
As the only female in my family to serve in the United States Army, I am proud to publicly give honor and respect in loving memory to my wonderful brothers:
EDDIE JULIUS METZ, JR. and RAYMOND METZ,
for their service in the United States Army during the Korean War. Their family nicknames were Black and Chief. Great memories.
RIP, dear brothers. Miss you so much.
