We arrived safely back in Martinsville this afternoon. We went to visit some Marine friends of ours in Jacksonville and we had a great time. We were treated to a wonderful dinner at Shogun and it was the first time I had tasted Japanese cooking unless you count the Tokyo Express here in Martinsville, but I don’ think that will count. We were also served up some tasty home cooked short ribs. To our wonderful hosts, thank you. We look forward to seeing you soon.
We also finally got to see the Beruit Memorial in honor of those Marines killed at the embassy many years ago. It really make you think about those who have faithfully served our country over its long history. Thank you for your service!
