Yesterday's Business

We had important business to attend to on Memorial Day.  Susan was out early collecting flowers from her garden and the wildflower patch.

She decorated several graves at Dahlgren.  This is O.T.'s.

This is a young Marine from our neighborhood.  He was buried in France, and his father had him shipped home after the war.  The information that came with the casket cast doubt on whether the soldier inside was actually John Voliva, because no identification was on the body.  Against all objectons, the father viewed the body so he would know, and it was his son, identified by his red hair.

There isn't much to say, except that the Father got closure.
