Practicing to be a soldier, Davey? 
But the Navy, not the Army, awaits you...

Thanks so much, David! I especially appreciate that 1952 image of the War Memorial Museum! We moved to Newport News
in January of 1954, and this is one of the places my daddy would frequently take our family to visit. WWII was only nine years in the
past. My daddy had served in the Western Theater as Regimental Surgeon with the 116th Infantry of the 29th Division, and he would
give us a highly informed and always fascinating commentary as we passed each exhibit.

Daddy died 44 years ago, and I haven't been back inside the museum since high school. For some reason, what stands out most clearly
in my mind is seeing Gen. Mark Clark's uniform. My father served under Gen. Omar Bradley, so I'm not sure why that should remain
such a vivid memory after all these years.
