The Most Decorated Soldier of World War II
The Memorial to the USS Maine
The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
When I had the great privilege of visiting Marydon and Harold last month we spent part of the time visiting Arlington National Cemetery. I've been there before -- several times -- but I never fail to come away moved from this resting place for so many who gave so much. I continue to be grateful to all who gave so much and continue to do so each day to insure freedom.
I dedicate this post to the memory of my father, who served for four years in World War II, including time spent in battle in Europe. I add my thanks to my colleague Jonathan, who was called up from the reserves and is now in Afghanistan for the next eleven months. Prayers for safety for Jonathan and his colleagues and for all who are in harm's way each day for the cause of liberty.
Buttercup and Jonathan, April 2010
