A Veteren Memorial Visit

Yesterday I took my Dad out to visit the Veterens Memorial here in Placerville...this is recently just built...I think it's about time. This is the first time Dad has been here...he got to see his brick that is located on one of the's a beautiful place and the whole little trip was really touching and beautiful....on the way home we stopped for a rootbeer float.
On Dad's brick it says...CMM (Chief Machinist Mate)..Bruce L. Dad's nickname is "Speed".....He served in the USN before...during...and after WWII. My Dad will be 91 years old next month. I am a proud daughter! (more photos below)..the last photo is Dad leaving the Memorial.....

What a special trip for him to go see the memorial and see his brick.

My dad turned 91 in January too (and in good health), so I can identify with your feelings of being blessed to still have your dad with you. Every moment that we have them with us is a gift. What a lovely tribute to your dad!

He sure is dressed up respectfully for the visit Vicci. I would love to hear his thoughts as he stood there at that memorial and saw his name on the brick. The memories that must have been there in his head. Did he talk about his thoughts or did he just "be" there?

Here's to Speed Enyart! Thank you, dear father of a great friend, for serving.

I have some photo catching up to do. You have been prolific. I have been doing stuff.

Can't that boat your dad made for your brother be put back on the water again? I sure wish I had an apricot tree like you and my own dad have. I think it got up to 52 today.

Tell your Dad a BIG THANK YOU and give him a hug for me!

I am sure your dad had a lot of emotions seeing that brick.

So hard to beleive his age!
Geesh, he doesn't even look his age!
Being 'Speedy' kept him young in body & spirit, huh?!
