The reason for the trip? Polly's son Colonel James Minick retired from the USMC.

Afterwards the Marines and guests ate wonderful home-made tacos from a truck that pulled right up to the park beside the monument.
Here is Jim with his wife Heidi and their children Grant and Emily. We all wish him the best in his retirement and we thanked him for his service.
