Taps Across America has become a new tradition. I think it's wonderful. Jim Coward and I bought kazoos and performed taps in front of the Beekay Theatre at 3 p.m. on Memorial Day.

It was a great feeling and honoring our fallen this way gave us great pride and joy. I'm sure there will be other photos that were taken. If these could be added to the mix that would be great.

I was blessed that my Marine son returned home safely from his two tours in the Middle East. All of our fallen are someone's children. Blessings to everyone and the families.
