Memorial Day 2012

In the summer of 1993, Terry and our youngest son, Dustin, went with his scout troop to Washington for a father and son outing.  While there, they had the honor of placing the wreath at the tomb of the unknown soldier at Arlington.  Dustin is second from the left.  A trip they will never forget....

Day is done, gone the sun,
From the hills, from the lake,
From the skies.
All is well, safely rest,
God is nigh.

Go to sleep, peaceful sleep,
May the soldier or sailor,
God keep.
On the land or the deep,
Safe in sleep.


  1. What a wonderful memory for those boys. I'm sure Memorial Day will always be special to them.

  2. What a wonderful experience. I saw your Doc in the parade. It's lovely :-)
