Good morning troops 0555 hrs on the west coast, still O'dark thirty here. Friday at Riverside National Cemetery Honor Team # 11 did 14 services honoring veterans laid to rest. Changed into our winter uniform and it was a warm day in the 70's with a nice breeze most of the day, finished up at 1445 hrs. Hope your Monday is a good one to start the week, looking forward to Thanksgiving and some Turkey, blessings y'all !

Joe, Kansas City, MO, 2019. Harrah's Casino, maybe.

I had a spare Stetson at the time and wrapped it in foil. Harder than it sounds.

Harry I copied a couple of your pictures but I cannot find the one of the soldier crossing the bridge

Thank you all for suggestions.  if you find it please post it

Comment by Harry Warner yesterday
Found it! Sent it! Check your e-mail Harold. To email, it is a one-step process for me using my iPad. To post same photo to Oldtimers, it's a two-step process. Apparently Windows and Apple and .ning haven't figured out how to play nice yet.

Harold, check the pictures I sent you for the Veteran's Day tribute you did. The one you're looking for was in there. I'm not having luck relocating it again.
