A message from Commander Mark Kemp (Nov. 13, 2006, 7:48 PM):
We had a great time at the Veterans Day parade on Saturday. Present was: Wes Davis, Bob Dobbs, Tommy Smith, and Mark Kemp. We had a very moving moment during the parade. A local boy had been killed in Irac just a few days prior. We stopped, did a right turn, and presented arms facing his picture being held by family members. The 123rd New York Company D also marched with us.
After the parade, we went to the Cracker Barrel for lunch. We had a wonderful meal followed by pecan pie and ice cream! After lunch, we had our business meeting to nominate officers.
