Washington DC Wreath Laying Ceremony

Before our move to Switzerland, we met up with Paul on the east coast and visited with our son Austin in Washington DC. Austin serves at Arlington National Cemetery and on Memorial Day he was in serving as honor guard the day that President Obama layed the wreath on the tomb of the unknown soldier. Laura and I got front row seats. You can see her in the bright orange shirt and I am standing next to her in light tan pants and a light green shirt. We were melting in one of the worst heatwaves in three years, but it was cool to see everything up close nonetheless.

In spite of the heat, I would've loved to have been there -- not only for family times, but to see Austin serve in such a meaningful capacity.
