Jayne, Kenneth

Enclosed is a picture of my brother, Kenneth Lyle Jayne, Fireman on the USS Oklahoma, killed on December 7, 1941.

Thanks for keeping the memories of these boys alive. Too often the general public forgets, as when I mentioned to my husband when writing a check in the grocery store, today is D Day and the young girl behind the cash register said, "What's D Day???" Makes us feel as if we did nothing at all.
