Today's ceremony was very good. It was too cloudy for a fly-over, so they began with the shot of a cannon. The Governor's Own - 145th Army Band played and one of it's members sang The Battle Hymn of the Republic (best I had ever heard). Brigadier General Myles Deering spoke inspiring words of remembrance and quoted Ronald Reagan: "Freedom is never
more than one generation away from extinction." Veda Cook, of the Gold Star Wives, presented a wreath, which was placed at the foot of the flagpole. Afterward we toured the museum and walked the grounds. I hope you'll put it on your calendar for next year (10:00 on Memorial Day).
