David Albert Semmler (RL Thomas) - CPL - E4 - US Army - Selective Service
196th Light Infantry Brigade. To our knowledge, CPL Semmler was not a lacrosse player but we play and enjoy so much lacrosse at the Semmler Fields, dedicated in his honor, that we stand in humble and grateful thanks for his service to his country.
"In the rising and setting of the sun, we remember them. In the blowing of the wind and the chill of the winter, we remember them. In the opening of the buds, the blueness of the sky, the rustle of the leaves and the blanketing of the snow, we remember them. When we are weary, lost , and sick at heart, when we have joys to share , we remember them. For as long as we live they too shall live, for they are a part of us, always. "
