As we remember the fallen who gave their lives so we can live free, remember Stuart. I have been thinking about him and how he would start going to every grave and put a flag on them. As well as he would salute and pray for them. This is the first Memorial Day that he will not be there. But instead, he will be saluting the fallen in Heaven. There is no doubt, that Stuart was devoted to our men who served many years ago. He was also devoted to the women who have served and still serving. May you raise your glass of whatever you may have and salute Stuart as you look towards the sky. Knowing Stuart, he would have really liked that. Please don't forget the fallen and those who are in the service now.
God Bless you Stuart. Carry on. Semper Fi. Emily)Missy)
We have just celebrated the Dunkirk evacuation in 1940 when 338,000 british and French soldiers were taken off the beeches by a fleet of small boats. Some of those boats had never been to sea but were river boats and crewed by civilians who answered the call to save those boys from the German War Machine. I had a friend who's Dad was killed at Dunkirk, he had gone over in a converted 16 ft lifeboat. And never came back. As he was a civillian his widow only got a pittance to bring the family up. Some of the original boats went over to france to commemerate this fantastic event. Did you hear of it in USA.
All difficulties can be overcome given time, patience and determination.
God Bless you Stuie. Carry on. Semper Fi.
God bless you Stuie! We miss and love you!
