Thanks for this update. Had I the $$ I would have flown in for this.

I'm raising a glass of whiskey this afternoon.

I tried to keep my distance, but did get to speak to his LCDR and trustee for a bit after the service. Brought the kids because it's important for them to learn to respect and honor our heroes. CA SGT, if that was you in the cowboy hat, nice ride. I was in the blue shirt and black tie.

I stopped by again after he was buried and left some flowers at his temporary marker.

For those that couldn't be there, I've attached a couple of pictures for you.

Rest in Peace, Cass.

It's likely I'll have a chance to take another trip there in a couple of months, after the permanent marker is placed. Will contact you and perhaps we could meet up and see it together.

When you do plan a return, I'd meet you and later hoist a pint for the man somewhere local. I had the good fortune to meet Mr G on a couple of occasions and had an enormous amount of respect for the man.
I was sitting offshore on a workboat on the day of the memorial or I would have most certainly attended.

RIP Cass. I 've been out of the loop for a while. Sad news. What an amazing man and historical figure in my mind. The things he saw and did, I can only imagine.
