A firing party from the 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade did a 21 Gun Salute followed by the playing of Taps by a 3rd Infantry Division bugler. The local Navy League chapter and Fleet Reserve Association does a great job planning and executing this event each year.
Enjoyed seeing my good friends and fellow amateur radio operators Mac McCormick Jr, AF4KL, his wife Irene, KF4RFF, and Mac McCormick III, KF4LMT. Mac Jr. is a retired Navy chief and a member of the Fleet Reserve Association.
