Summary Quote

“All went well today. It was a beautiful sunny day..in the 50s. Shed some tears, walked a bit, thought a whole bunch as to why I was there…it was an important reason to be there. Rows and rows of white grave markers, and every now and then, there was this lone CG flag. It was making a statement, here lies a CG veteran – a hero, not forgotten, not today, not this year, not ever again!”

-- BM2 Steven Kurkowski, USCGR
