Memorial Day 2011

On this Memorial Day, I'd like to take a moment to recognize those who served their country and are no longer with us.  I don't know of any wrestlers who lost their lives while serving.  The listings below are surely incomplete (and recognize only those who are no longer with us).

Please e-mail me (wrestlingscoutATgmail.com) if you know of names that I should add.
