I love the beautiful war memorial at the Lighthouse dedicated to all the veterans from the Old Mission Peninsula. This being Veteran’s Day, no better time to celebrate those folks, many of whom are related to me and Tim, including his dad Tug Boursaw (WWII), my dad Walter Johnson (WWII), my uncle Guy Johnson (WWII), and my grandma Stella Johnson’s first husband, Frank Edgecomb (WWI).

Here are a few photos I took of the memorial this summer. Do you have friends and relatives listed on the memorial? Tell us in the comments below.

A NOTE FROM JANE: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper. Because the Gazette is mainly reader-supported, I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks my way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. Check out the donation page here. Thank you so much for your support. -jb

  1. My uncle Tug Boursaw. Although they aren’t on the memorial. My uncle Jack, Jim and Bryce Boursaw are all Veterans. I’m not sure if Jerry was in the service. I recognized alot of the last names from the many stories. I say this with love and pride. I am so proud of my uncles and am very proud to be related to the Boursaws. All of them!!!! Love you all
