On Saturday October 15, 2016 my daughter’s American Heritage Girl Troop and our brother Trail Life Troop had the privilege of thanking veterans who were visiting the National Museum of the Marine Corps as part of an Honor Flight. To say that it was a moving experience doesn’t do justice to the memorable morning we had. I am sure that the young men and women will not soon forget the morning spent honoring those who served. Also, a special thank you to museum volunteer Trish, who made sure we were in the right place and gathered a few Quantico Marines for the big send off. She was absolutely wonderful!
While in Pennsylvania I visited the Monroe County Historical Association’s museum. The association has taken up permanent residence in Stroud Mansion. A beautiful 12 room Georgian-style mansion built in 1795 by Jacob Stroud for his son, John. There is a research library and a rotating exhibit along with the permanent collection. It is an absolute gem. I highly, recommend stopping in if you ever make it to Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. Until then here a few of my favorite photos from my visit.
