We're lucky to have clear blue skies in Los Angeles today. We're lucky to have the freedom to enjoy this holiday. Thanks to all of those who serve and have served our country.
I found some photos of my Dad's first years in the U.S. Army, 1941, Fort Bliss, Texas. Eventually, he achieved the rank of Major. Dad spent 4-1/2 years in the service.

We never went camping as a family because Pop said that he never wanted to sleep on the ground again after all those years in the Army! We went boating instead and sailed to Catalina...that's almost like camping.
Hope you're having a wonderful holiday.
