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 lifelong resident of the Old Mission Peninsula, Jane grew up on a cherry farm (Johnson Farms), married the boy next door (Tim Boursaw), and raised two kids there (Will and Marissa). Her 35-year career as a photojournalist includes bylines with the New York Times and Ladies' Home Journal, and interviews with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. But she loves writing about the OMP most of all.

  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
