75 years ago today - Jun 26, 1948

General Mark W. Clark presides at a military memorial service at Garland, Utah, for four LDS brothers killed as servicemen during a six-month period of World War II: Clyde, LeRoy, and twins Rolon and Rulon Borgstrom. American families are given a small service-flag (with a gold star in the center) to display in the window of the home for their son/daughter killed in the war, and Borgstrom "Gold Star Mother" displays a flag with four stars. A Roman Catholic family suffers a similar tragedy when five Sullivan brothers die on the day their U.S. ship is torpedoed in World War II.
