Kilroy was here

Yes, one of the most famous soldiers of World War II was not to be kept out of the monument in Washington, DC. It was not listed on the architectural drawing but some how, it appeared.

It was both an honor and a pleasure for his three sons and one grandson to accompany him on this weekend. We also were treated to a windshield tour of the Marine Corp Base at Quantico by Dan Stanton (US Air Force Colonel Ret.)

Stay tuned for some stories and more pictures.
