I talked to Uncle Ed today and he told me all about his day. He had a great time visiting the sites in Washington D.C. The whole experience was incredible. And, he loved the mail call. He was impressed that I remembered he went overseas on the U.S.S. West Point and that I put a ship on the front of his card.
Thanks for stopping by!
