    I haven't seen Noe and his wife in quite a few years, but remember their son's passing like it was yesterday. I also haven't been to Post 89 in a very long time - did a lot of volunteer work there 10 or so years ago. I'm so glad to see them sponsoring something like this.

    And JBGood - while you're remembering - think about PFC Michael Batson from La Marque - first fatality from Galveston County in Viet Nam.

    T.C. loves parks and memorials.
    Why not put in a memorial area at one of them that's paved with engraved bricks that folks can buy in memory of a veteran.
    I'll buy some.
