Whereas, Mr. McRae served his country with honor and distinction as a member of the United States Army. He was honorably discharged from military service as a Corporal Technical Five on February 8, 1946; and
Whereas, he retired as an employee of Dixiana Mills in 1987 after twenty-nine years of service; and
Whereas, Mr. McRae was a faithful member of McCoy Chapel United Methodist Church where he served as church treasurer for nineteen years; and
