Jaap- PFC Gerald "Mike" Kight and his family/friends/community and country were honored on 18 & 19 May 2012 upon his return home to White Salmon, Washington. He received Full Military Honors during the entire two days service. He was placed next to his Mother & Father in one of the most beautiful cemeteries I have seen in many years. He finally home where he belongs and resting in peace. Thank everyone in the Netherlands for your support and honoring our countries military servicemen who continue even today and will do so tomorrow for Freedom.
