Happy Memorial Day

Oh Beautiful
For Heroes Proved 


 In Liberating Strife  

 Who more than self
their country loved

And mercy more than life

America America

May God thy gold refine

'till all success be nobleness

And every gain divine.

Our Daddy said one of the most moving moments he ever had was flying home during the Vietnam War on a transport plane carrying the dead from the war. He said that the Marines stood the entire flight guarding those fallen.

We remember.
