In May we were invited to Philadelphia by Scott Brown, Director of the Veterans Advisory Commission for the City of Philadelphia, where I was honored to speak about Philadelphia veterans featured in IN HONOR AND MEMORY. I got to share the stage with my good friend Bob Erkert, one of the many contributors to the book. Thank you to the people of Philadelphia for making us feel so very welcome.
We then travelled to Washington, DC, for Memorial Day weekend, where we met General Barry McCaffrey and MG Marty Whelan, from whom I received a challenge coin. We saw a lot of old friends, and met many new people. Thank you to those who shared information and photographs for future publications.
We are now back in Florida, doing more research before we set out again this summer for events in Springfield, Illinois (VVA) and the VHPA Reunion, Washington, DC.
