Late Memorial Day

I missed posting Memorial Day. I was up at my Moms and she doesn't have Internet access, but I still find I need to post something. My Dad was in the Navy for twenty five years. He spent part of his time overseas when he was younger in Europe. Every year he would spend at least two weeks in the summer of sea duty, where he had to go aboard an aircraft Carrier. He was an Aviation Ordiance and the a Chief.

Where my Mom lives now she is pretty much out in the country. The town she lives in has less than a thousand people in it. The town next to her is Middelton. They have they Veteran's Wall, where everyone from the area that served in the military is up on their wall. Each veteran has a brick. The one above is for my Dad.

Hey John - is your dad buried in Arlington?

Amy, No he's buried in a little family cemetery for my Mom's family outside Memphis. His gravestone is a military one, just like the ones used in Arlington. Whenever I go visit my Mom I make a point of visiting my Dad's grave.

Thanks Vinnie and Trav.

His headstone is very similar to the ones in Arlington!
