THE STORY:

 

Seaman Apprentice Terry Ward was enlisted in the United States Navy during the draft in October of 1963. Serving almost 2 full years, with 3 months of Foreign Service, SA Ward was honorably discharged in August of 1965.

Terry Ward was born October 22, 1944 and passed away April 21, 2015. Unfortunately, no relatives have been able to be located.

The need is for financial contributions to pay for Terry's funeral expenses. She will be buried with full honors and provided a headstone by Veteran Affairs. US Vets have identified a funeral home, Shaun A. Reid Funeral Services & Memorial Chapel, LLC at 4804 Georgia Avenue NW Washington DC.
