It’s Been A While – Bit off more than we could chew

Conditions:  69F mostly clear and dry – knda nice actually

Commentary: YHC had not taken the Q for a good while and thanks to Stepshow’s voluntolding, it was time to step up.  No worries.  Had been thinking of doing this for a while and started to list out all of YHC’s favorites.  Once the list was created and the weinke was written – it looked awesome.  In hindsight tho, it turned out to be an overfull plate at an all you can eat buffet.  The pax stayed busy…  No one completed the beatdown.

Devo: YHC shared with the pax that he just returned to town after attending the funeral of a great uncle who had a notable career of service to his country and to his fellow men.  He dropped out of H.S.  He forged his parents signatures at 17 to join the USMC.  He then took an opportunity to attend the Naval Academy in the mid-50’s, became a Marine officer and served for over 25 years.  He served 2 tours in Vietnam.   His funeral at Arlington National Cemetery was attended by many people and was with full honors:  a band, 2 platoons of Marines and a 21 gun salute….   The reception left a huge impact on YHC.  Several people took time to speak about this man and shared stories of how he positively impacted the lives of many people.  One man stated:  “He looked for Jesus in everyone he met.”    We need to do the same.
