The story continues...

We received a letter from Major Walter May  informing us that Jason was made commanding officer of Company F and promoted to the rank of Captain six days before his death.  Papers were not filed due to battle events.

March 15
We have received word that Roger Pillu, who was instrumental in finding and returning Jason’s Helmet, passed away this week in France.  Not enough can be said about his dedication to returning the helmet and giving us a sense of peace about the sacrifice of Jason and his five men.  Roger will be remembered by us and the readers of our book, Jason’s Helmet.

Emerson S. Barron, 85, of Hagerstown, Md., and formerly of Williamsport, Md., died Thursday, Sept. 22, 2011, at the VA Medical Center in Martinsburg, W.Va.
Jason’s Helmet was his story as much as anyone elses.  He and his family mourned Jason’s death in the war. He was forever grateful to the new friends in France who returned the helmet of his brother and gave a little bit of peace of mind where only feelings of loss and mourning existed.
