I was there and enjoyed it very much.  The sun even came out for the ceremonies.

I'm pretty sure that my RHS Class of 1952 (the Vintage Year!) classmate John Ware was in the US Army as his shirt displays and not the Navy. Good to see you, John, dear old friend. And to think that we both served in, or in my case, near Fontainbleau, France, just a few years apart from one another. Thanks for your service, buddy.
