And when he gets to heaven,
To St. Peter he will tell,
“Another Marine reporting, Sir,
I’ve served my time in Hell!”

Wow, that is all I will say…
I took this picture at the Sunrise Cemetery in Fortuna. Our Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts put flags on the Veteran’s graves.
This touched me. Father was a Veteran. It makes me feel good to know that, in another County altogether, a Scout honors my father.
Thank You and Cub Scout Pack 47! And your honorable Charter Partners and your community sponsors.!! Shop local, folks!-
Sorry, I had to add this. I was Ordeal weekend, and I’m feeling particularly Scout-y what with Scout-o-Rama coming up. Thank you for all your helpz! You are OSSUM! and so is Joe!!
