My father directs the music for Isle of Hope Baptist Church’s Sunday Morning church services; this year, he put together a PowerPoint presentation to show as part of the church’s Memorial Day Service. I’ve uploaded it here as my blog post recognizing Memorial Day and those who have given their lives for our Country: memorial_2011c
If you pay special attention, you’ll notice a monument to some of those who died in the 29 July 1967 explosion and fire aboard the USS Forrestal. My father is a US Navy veteran, a retired Chief Petty Officer. He served aboard the USS Forrestal and was serving aboard her on that day.
