When my husband and I first moved to this town, one of the first American Legion members we met was a WWII female Marine. She proudly states that she was in the only female Marine Corps band during WWII and played the euphonium. This birthday, I got her a T-shirt and 2 coins.

Thank you! I'll take a better picture today, since she's always been a part of our ceremonies. I tried to convince her to ride in the parade, but she wants to sell poppies instead.

Well here is MG Marcia Anderson. She is historic because she is the first Black female MG in Army History.

If you are ever in the DC area j would encourage everyone to visit the Women in Military Service Memorial. It's a great place to get a lot of history as discussed here and see true stories of women who served. Their exhibit on Nurses in Vietnsm I thought was amazing

LTC Richard Wasserman. I have come such a very long way from living outside the wire of Soviet Uranium Mines in Czechslovakia . . . through so many conflicts and disasters . . . to finally consider coming to rest on Ventura Beach between Malibu and Santa Barbara. But, I worry about the many good people still in harm's way . . . it is very hard to even consider settling down to a much more peaceful, secure, and quieter life. Warmest Regards, Sandy

We should all be thankful to be so blessed we can make a difference in the lives of many others.
