Fort Douglas Day
Fort Douglas Day involved military from Revolutionary War up to modern military. Here are a few of our guys from the American Civil War and also WWII. They were great.
The World War II boys got out a parachute and played around for a little while. It was awesome. There was just enough wind to fill the chute and make them dance a bit. I love the 40s era and really appreciate the WWII veterans that fought for our nation. How blessed we are to have such great military men and women who keep our flags blowing in free skies.
I do have to admit that one of my favorite parts of the day was when Kris, our UCWA president this year, pulled out his wooden bat and leather ball. I adored them, fondled them, and then asked him to pitch me a few. Yeah, very unlady-like in a big skirt and all, but I could not resist. After a few pitches, a few fouls, and a strike, I sent one out of the park. Really, it went in the road. Took me by surprise, took Kris by surprise, and I think everyone else that might have seen it was surprised. It felt good! What a fun fun day we had, thanks to all my historical friends!
