On this Memorial Day, we dedicate this post to all of the men and women who serve and have served, in all branches and on all shores.
I especially want to remember members of our family:
Uncle Reynold L.J. Spadoni, PFC, killed in action, Germany, 1944, (brother Rey’s namesake).
Father in law Richard E. Gorman, PFC, who served in the Pacific theatre during WWII.
Uncle Dr. Joseph G. DiStasio, Lt., US Army, who served during WWII
Brother in law John T. Gorman, Spec 5, US Army, who served during the Vietnam Nam war.
Without their bravery and that of countless others, we would be living in a very different world.

A note on this photo: it’s not exactly as it appears! In the interest of full disclosure, you should know that this was taken on my iPhone 4, using an app called Marblecam, which gives the effect of the “upside down reflection in a water droplet”. We were at a scenic overlook in the Mt. Washington Valley of NH this weekend, and these two flags caught my eye. Total time to make the image and tweak it a bit, all in the iPhone, about 5 minutes. Had I attempted to actually capture the image in a falling drop of water… well, let’s just say I’d still be there.
Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by 2 Guys.
