On 05/17/03 my youngest son (Jason) and I got to gather with Cindi (Weiss) Skinner and presented her with the memorial plaque. The presentation was done in her home. My son Jason did the presentation in his full dress uniform and delivered a short speech to Cindi, which went something like this:
On behave of the United States Army and the Lancer Association, we would like to present this plaque to you in memory of your brother William Weiss Jr. Although he is lost he will never be forgotten.
He then took a step to the rear and delivered a salute to Cindi.
We then chatted a bit then said our goodbyes. Cindi was a very wonderful lady and seemed very pleased the gesture was made by the Lancers to honor her brother.
