Dad's Headstone


In a cold drizzle, Tim and I went to Ft. Snelling today to see where our dad's remains were interred. It was right, it was fitting. Underneath his name and rank it said "42nd Rainbow Division; He Was Faithful"
It was not emotional other than a fitting place for our dad, among the faithful veterans. It will not be a place a pilgrimage because I know that he is not there, just the remains. We are citizens elsewhere.
