    I got a message from my oldest son today. He was selected as NCOIC of the American contingent that is in France this week for the D-Day ceremonies. Message as follows:

    Today I had the absolute honor and privilege of marching the entire American Contingent through the streets of Carentan, as we celebrated its liberation by the 101st Airborne after D Day. One of the best things that’s ever happened to me.

      Thanks to all for the loves and comments. I will pass them along when he returns Next week.

      Manikin I thought you for sure would appreciate what this means. You did your time in another war. I can't wait for that dance but not rushing to get there. Still work to be done here. Take care sweetie.
