Memorial Day was a nice low-key day for the Gardner Clan. After naps, we got dressed and ready to go to the cemetery to pay honor to my late Grandfather Jack Young who was a CPL in the US Army during World War II.
I am not 100% on details but Grandpa worked on P52 Mustangs that flew sorties out of Great Britain (that would similar to where Ben Affleck was when he apparently died in the movie "Pearl Harbor"). Grandpa always talked about these planes and as a young boy I remember vivid believing they were the absolutely most dominating plane of their time. He was immensely proud to make sure his planes were in the air hitting their marks on German targets during his time in WWII.
Whew! Gardner Tangent Moment there... So we went to the cemetery to place flags on his grave, below you will find a pictorial of our trip...
While Mom & Abby were upstairs getting dressed Trey & I were watching a baseball game on TV...
He ran, got his bat said "Hit the ball" and proceeded to mimic the Major Leaguer at bat.
Flags in Hand, check...Ready to go!
He ran right up and tried sticking his flag like the one already in place.
Abby showed him how to do it.
Dad help place them after some time.
Me and the kiddos proudly finished :)
Grandma is right next to Grandpa and Abby thought she needed a flag too.
Megs favorite photo of the day.
Happy Memorial Day to all the Vets that served and are not with us anymore.
CPL Jack S. Young, US Army
