Made it back here... last time was around 1982, and my great-grandfather was there. Gotta find the pic of him, looking at the plane. Imagine being 18, during WWI, and flying again in WWII.

Not bad, for a memorial. My daughter (6 yrs old) got her Junior Ranger badge. I’m so glad we got a chance to be there.

They did a really, really good job making this thing. Hope it lasts another hundred years.

All in all, I’m really glad I got a chance to see it, and be there for the first time in a couple decades.
