This morning at 11:00 we re-dedicated Route 15A within the Lima Town lines to "Lima Veterans Memorial Highway."

From: http://www.nysenate.gov/press-...ans-memorial-highway
“Every corner of this state has a rich tradition of national service and every citizen owes a degree of gratitude to all those who have served through the years. That is even more true for the residents of Lima,” Gallivan said. “Lima was founded by veterans of the Revolutionary War and the town has sent its sons and daughters to defend America in every one of our nation’s major armed conflicts. This designation is a fitting tribute to both the town and its tradition of military service.”

Went to lunch at Bugaboo Creek with a Army Vet, neighbor and poker buddy.

This afternoon (15:00-20:00) standing a Flag Line for calling hours, for a 43 year MIA's homecoming! Sgt. David Lemcke, killed in a bunker accident in 1968 in Vietnam finally comes home. It was a chilly 35deg and grapple was falling/blowing in our faces.

This was the first year I've missed the program here. Sure hated missing it though.
