Happy JULY 4th

Navy honor guard stands at attention/USS Roosevelt 2006

Sending best wishes to everyone for a safe and enjoyable July 4th.

As we celebrate the birthday of our nation, we are mindful of all who have worn the uniform of the United States Armed Forces and served our country with honor, dignity, and courage.

In the photo, an honor guard on board the USS Roosevelt–a Nimitz Class Aircraft Carrier–stand at attention as part of a burial at sea. Their posture and facial expressions convey the solemnity and seriousness of the moment as they salute the life and service of a fellow sailor who had served with them.

Photos like this one–in which I can easily envision my father in the same uniform–always call to mind his daring service on the PT boats in the Mediterranean and the South Pacific.


  1. ENJOY!!
