Memorial Day at The Marine Corp Museum

We spent part of our Memorial Day weekend at the National Marine Corp Museum in Quantico VA.Quantico is almost like home to us in so many ways. I am a Marine Corp brat.  My dad was assigned to Quantico in the late 60's so  I actually lived on base (Thomason Park baby) for a few years, attended first and second grade at Quantico Elementary school and then as a teenager spent lots of time at the Officers pool and then the Officers club in my 20's.Guy knows the base inside and out having worked on many projects there when he was in Sheet Metal including at one time a project manager at the National Marine Corp museum.We were there because Guy's daughter Shelby was invited to perform at the Memorial Day concerts.  She was one of only 5 HS Seniors invited to perform so it was a huge honor for her.  Before it started we spend about an hour walking around and didn't even start to see everything that is on display.  We will definitely be returning this spring to visit and learn more. Entrance to the Museum8108578_orig Shelby performing3171451_orig One of the gardens2700532_orig  Bugler plays taps9937968_orig
