Dad asked Mom last night if she was going to make new pages for us in honor of Memorial Day and she replied that she wasn't planning to. Then Dad said, at the least, I should have one, and so I found myself having my picture taken last night with a collar I had not worn before.
During dinner tonight, Dad said that I should include the Marines' Hymn on my song list. He comes from a big family of 10 children (7 boys, 3 girls) and they smacked each other alot growing up, just like we do sometimes, but much worse! Dad is the middle child, and he and his four older brothers, father, and grandfather served in the Marine Corps. His oldest brother, father, and grandfather were laid to rest at the Arlington National Cemetary in Virginia.
Let us remember those who died serving our nation and those who are serving our country today.
