    A Feel-Good Story

    My wife and I took a neighbor to the cemetery today to “see” her dad, a Marine who was killed on Okinawa on May 10, 1945. She was six when he was killed and hasn’t been to the cemetery in years and years and years. She was excited about “going to see her daddy.”

    Memories are precious.

    That was a very nice thing for you and your wife to do. So many sacrificed their lives and their families sacrificed as well. I can't imagine growing up without my Dad since age 6.

    Earlier this week, I started re-reading a book I gave my dad years ago, Tarawa: The Story of a Battle; today I was surfing the web and saw this story >>> https://www.omaha.com/news/military/...35a631351.html.

    The grief that so many families endured is incomprehensible.
