General


so, this guy reminds me of MacArthur, or was it somebody else who had the pipe? anyways, tonight I had my free steak dinner @ Applebee's. THANK YOU Applebee's for remembering us today...anyways, I sat at the bar because the place was just packed. it was suppose to be an hour wait and since it was just me tonight, the bar was perfect seating. well no sooner had I sat, the gentlemen next to me left.. well immediately upon him leaving his chair, an older woman and 'younger' man seated themselves. well lo & behold, this 'older' woman, in her 70s at least, was a Veteran. I would have loved to hear her stories. was she from the MacArthur era? I have no clue. I would have asked, but the 'younger' man (still older than me), seemed to command her attention. what an honor to even come across a WOMAN who served long time ago. the younger man said something about WWII. was that the time women here in the states served initially? my history/herstory is slipping my mind. my goodness, women serving back then was their own chapter. what a moment tonight for me. so that topped my day. any history buffs can update me on this if you'd like. right now I have to do homework. so maybe in the next few days, I can go google women and WWII. .....more parade photos soon....
