I am very proud of the fact that, beginning with my father who served in the United States Coast Guard, continuing with myself who served as an enlisted member of the United States Marine Corps and later as a commissioned officer in the United States Navy as a member of the Seabees, then down to my eldest son who served in the United States Army and finally my youngest son who served in the United States Air Force, three generations of my family served honorably in the United States Armed Forces.
As a result, even when outside of the United States, I seek out and visit Military Memorials.
I lived briefly here in Yuma, Arizona, back in late 1963 into early 1964, so visiting the Yuma Armed Forces Park is very special for me.
Finally, I must add that both Patti's father and her eldest brother served honorably in the United States Navy.
Looking back at the above entrance area from within the Park.
Into the Park we now walk.
A beautiful late Spring afternoon here in Yuma, Arizona.
We salute all who served our nation.
