If you know me and have read my blog for a while, then you know about my favorite veterans and the best Veteran Day's ever. Rather than write about my trips to Washington DC with my Uncle Bob for his Ia Drang Valley Veteran's reunion, I thought I would just post some of my favorite pictures of the trip(s). It was a tuff decision on which pictures to choose. We took lots of photos and had lots of fun seeing the sights in DC including some great memorial shots, but I thought I would stick to the photos of the Vets. Thanks for laying down your life for your country. And for those vets not pictured - like all my blog buddies - thank you, too.
These two photos were taken in the hospitality suite: Hal Moore and Joe Galloway and Jes.
My Marine cousin Jim, Bruce Crandal and Uncle Bob. Color Guard from Ft. Hood and Jesse.
These photos were taken at the banquet:
Uncle Bob and Aunt Caroline with their buddies. 2nd pic - cousins. Capt. Jeff Donnithore, Uncle Bob, MOHreceipiant Ed Freeman, and (now) Major Jim Lively.
This picture is one of my favorites because it has Marine, Air Force, Army and Navy all pictured. Dress blues and new shined shoes...
