I was in downtown San Diego, near the USS Midway Museum. I was in yet another retirement of a shipmate. (Is this a sign that I am getting old, if all of my friends are retiring?) There is a wonderful park near the waterfront there with a celebration of “The Greatest Generation”. Many of the statues in my pictures celebrate the sacrifices of not only the men and women who have given their lives for their country (and their valor) but also the family members who sacrifice at home. If you are visiting San Diego, make a day of it. Visit the USS Midway, walk around the park, and take a moment to say thank you to a generation that made this country what we are today.
