Two years ago today we laid my husband, Jim  in the Arlington National Cemetery. There was a  blizzard going on, Washington DC was literally shut down and that morning it was doubtful whether the ceremony would even be possible. But, as a result of the dedication of the US Army Caisson Platoon, 3rd Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), and the love and support of so many family members and friends who were willing to travel so far to brave blowing snow and slush, we granted Jim's longtime wishes to be buried in Arlington.  It was one of the saddest, yet proudest, days of my life.  I miss him every minute of every day, but I know my sweet husband and hero soldier rests in peace among his comrades in arms.

"Just returned Thursday (2014) from a reunion with 8 other members of my old platoon in Las Vegas. It was a great time with old friends. We had a reunion in Deadwood, SD in 2009. This is our second time to get together. We had a couple more attend this year and hope to find more of the vets from our unit. These were and always will be "My Brothers in Arms."
