Dr. Gevas delivered my babies in 1981 and 1982. Thank you for your service to our country.

Thank you for your sacrifices Dr.Gevas.

I had two uncles that landed in Normandy, one became a German POW and the other was highly decorated. I knew nothing of the medals or the large number of them until after he had passed, he didn't ever mention them. He did share some very good stories and always told us kids while we were playing Army, war is no game.

He had 12 medals displayed at his funeral, yet he never said one word about them to anyone. He also fibbed about his age to enlist at 17 years old.

Dr, Gevas and his wife were wonderful people in their practice in Parkersburg. Dr. Gevas delivered my daughter back in 1990. Cmming from Nashville, state of the art medical facilities, we were a little apprehensive about the small town doctor who was the only one who would take my wife as a patient due to our very late term pregnancy. Dr. Gevas and his wife were so very kind, took my wife as a patient, and delivered us a beautiful baby girl! He was the most skilled doctor and we are grateful that we met him and his wife. Down to earth truly good people.

Another thoughtful story from one of our Greatest Generation!!! OH, if the younger generations had the attitude,responsibility,love of country,independence,religious affiliation and down right hard working and family loving mindset that was prevalent amongst those folks. Thanks,Dr.Gevas for your service and making the greatest country in the world safe,and providing a sterling example to younger generations to hopefully follow.
