Memorial Day with the VA boys


Yesterday, the H took our boys into D.C. for some Memorial Day observances. They picked up H's cousin John, then went to visit Grandpa's burial site in Arlington National Cemetery. Grandpa was in the Navy for 20 years. He survived the attack at Pearl Harbor and also fought in the Korean War. We are a very proud of his service to our country. At 'N's request, they also stopped by the Marine War Memorial which depicts the conquering of Mount Serabachi in Iwo Jima. Our family is inspired by the men and women who serve our country - past and present. God Bless America, and especially those who serve.
