KeeWee's Birthday Surprise

Off to Walmart and then grab a quick dinner in Oak Harbor, so she thinks!

After Walmart and a cruise through the dollar store, we stopped by the new Navy Memorial for Naval Aviators in Oak Harbor.

Very impressive. Many of the bricks are engraved with the names of aviators or flight crews lost while performing their patrol duties.

A list of some of the patrol squadrons.

To get to the Naval Aviator Memorial you park at the Skagit Valley College parking lot and it's a short walk through the campus to the memorial. Here's a sculpture on the campus.

After the Memorial visit we stopped by the grocery store to replenish our food supply, then to go get some dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant, the Mi Pueblo in Oak Harbor.

From left to right, KeeWee, "Evil Al", Rainy, LouG and Luke. Every one has won at least one pin shoot.

When we walked in to the Mi Pueblo, guess who "Just" happended to be there, a bunch of our pin shooting "extended family" !! Lou and I had managed to get everyone invited without KeeWee finding out. What a fun surprise. We had a delicious dinner, got a chance to visit, and just plain had an enjoyable evening.

Some very nice photos Mr. C. Just got waylaid by a memory. Was with a VP squadron in '66-'68 with the detachment (6 aircraft) at a place by the name of Tan San Nhut (Aug. 1966) had a little sapper attack...
