Memorial Day 2012 Update:

Where is the time going? I think only one person, Jacob Wathen, has joined the military since our last update, Ooh Rah Jacob, congratulations for graduating from basic training, boy don’t we all wish we could go through that again! I have added him to the bottom of this page. John Butler just returned from another tour in Korea, and now him and Lesa and their daughter are stationed in Germany, the home of Oktoberfest, for three years and loving it!

Here is an interesting thing, there are elementary school children looking at our families military history! Mrs. Carter, an elementary school teacher at, Union Elementary School, in Shallotte, NC, has a link on her AIG class page to our ‘A Salute to our Military’. She uses the page as a tool for her students to learn about our veterans. She chose a picture of my dad as the link to our page.
