We will remember them

We will be on the road tomorrow making our way to Adelaide for Anzac Day (April 25th) where The Golfer once again will meet with his airforce ‘mates’ and march down King William Street honoring those who went before.

  1. We miss attending my husband’s shipmate reunions. There is nothing like the closeness, the memories, the events they share when together. They always honor those who went before.
