It was a really rare thing to have flown 30 combat missions. Most of the WWII pilots flew less than ten.
Marcia asked me to wear one of her mother's suits as well. It was really sweet. She also had me wear some of her mother's old jewelry.
The rest of the kids were all ready in their red, white, and blue.
We didn't end up getting to do the parade, but we made a fun family day out of it anyway!
We ended the fun by going to IHOP for brunch, then (since we had a ton of candy we were planning on throwing at the parade) we drove around and threw candy at our neighbors and friends. It was almost as good. ;)
