Had a surprise phone call from Jordan last evening. She was at the WWII memorial, saw my name and gave me a call. Didn't have much time to talk - her group was on the move. Made me realize how little I know about the place. For example where she would have seen my name. I know Mom entered it on some kind of a register, but I don't know where or how it may be displayed. I also would like to know more about Jordan's trip, but I don't have her email address. Will one of you send it to me?

We had a nice program this afternoon outside on the paved area you can see out of my window. Chairs were set under a temporary awning. A group of veterans came who serve regularly at flag presentations at veterans gravesites. They folded a flag, and one of them read the meaning of each triangular fold as it was made. When the folding was completed a bugler played taps. Very impressive. The Activities Director pinned each Primrose veteran present with a flag pin. Although I don't think all the veterans were there, someone mentioned that the last four men who moved here are veterans. Tony DeLong of the Richland County Veterans Commission spoke here last week and said forty Primrose vets receive some form of VA benefits.
