I am putting together a Christmas present for my dad, who was Greg's best friend in High School in Sioux City, IA. It is Greg's Gallantry Cross with Palm medal framed with the following background. While researching the medals and looking around for any information about Greg, I came across the picture you posted and it is the first image I have ever seen of my uncle in combat. I was stunned. I didn't think anything like that existed. My father, Mark Duggan, married my mom, Katie Wigton who is Greg's youngest sister. I was born a year after Greg died and named for him. It has always been a point of pride for me to be named for someone I only know through stories but by all accounts was a heroic person. I will always carry a piece of him with me and seeing your picture posted was like putting a long lost but familiar face to the person who has always been more of an idea than a reality. Tonight he has become more real to me and it is comforting. Like welcoming someone home from a long forgotten journey. It is what I imagine heaven to be, if only for a flash of an instant out of time, when all of our loved ones will gather to greet us as we leave this world. Thank you for caring enough to post that picture. In this time of heroes and great acts on behalf of freedom, Greg's life and death are that much more poignant and honored.
