Here is a picture of Elaine and I along with our oldest son, Verlon at Dulles International Airport in northern Virginia. It was taken on the Friday before Memorial Day in 1970. We had taken him out to fly to California and begin several months of training with the National Guard. He lives in Virginia and called on the anniversary of this departure day and asked if we remembered what we did 42 years earlier on that date. He went on to tell of the problems of arriving at Fort Ord late on a Friday night ahead of a 3-day holiday weekend. I was serving as the Director of the USDA/Soil Conservation Service, Personnel Division and Elaine was a Management Analyst with the US Forest Service Timber Management Division. Tim was finishing up his Freshman year at UN-L, Carolyn her Junior year and Jon his Freshman year at Wakefield HS in Arlington, VA.
