Ghost of WWII vet killed in action glad his sacrifice was meaningful

Memorial Day

The ghost of U.S. Army Pvt. John B. Cummings of Hartford, Wisconsin, who was killed in action during World War 2, while defending the French border as a member of Company A, 276th Infantry Regiment, 70th Infantry Division, is glad that his sacrifice on behalf of defending freedom has resulted in significant savings on patio furniture for Americans in 2023.

“I’ll admit, it’s been pretty discouraging these last few years. You give literally your all fighting nazis and less than 100 years later, you have your own countrymen emulating those bums at their worst on your own home soil!” he said. “Gee whiz, fellas.”

“But then Memorial Day rolls around and what was supposed to be a somber occasion honoring the U.S. military personnel who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces turned into yet another ‘wacky’ sale weekend by the retail industry and I see nice folks like the Hendersons saving up to 70% on a variety of outdoor furniture right now, from full conversation sets to umbrellas with a number of easy, reasonable financing options available, and it was all worth it!”

He looked down at the Hendersons in the backyard of their Brandon home from Warrior Heaven and said, “Say, that’s some mighty swell patio furniture you got there! We didn’t have patios when those lousy krauts killed me in 1944″.

They didn’t respond because they don’t believe in ghosts or appreciating those who gave of themselves for the benefit of others, but continued to make plans to have some friends over to grill some bratwursts.

“Well, that’s kind of hurtful,” said the ghost.
