Martin was going through his personal effects to see what he has and to decide what to do with them. He made a wonderful discovery, a tintype of his grandfather, Homer, who served in as a volunteer for the 20th Kansas regiment during the Spanish-American War. He said that he had served in the Philippines 1898-1899. Martin was named after his grandfather and is actually Homer Martin III. We’ve done lots of Legacy type work for him in the past and knew that Leave A Legacy was just the place to bring it to. We scanned it in, restored it and printed copies for his two cousins, his twin sister and his two kids.
