Visit to War Memorials in DC, Arlington Cemetery was overdue
It took me almost 75 years but, along with wife Peg, friends Bob and Geri Burnett of Rockdale and Jerry and
Vicki Roddy of Walland, Tennessee, I made it to the National Mall in Washington DC.
(Since I admitted to almost 75 years, let
me hasten to explain that Peg and those
friends are much younger; no doghouse
for this scribe.)
