About Me

My photo
Forest, Virginia, United States
A long time ago, my sophomore English teacher, Father William Campbell, saw something in my writing and predicted that I would someday become a newspaper columnist. He suggested the perfect title for my column--"Leaves of the Palm." Now that I have a little extra time on my hands I've decided to put Father Campbell's prediction to the test. I'm going to start using this blog site not just to reprint opinion pieces I've published elsewhere but to try to get more of my ideas and opinions out there. Feedback is welcome. To find out more about me, please check out my Web site: www.EdwardFPalm.com (Click on any of the photos below for an enlarged view.)

The Bremerton Armed Forces Day Parade

The Bremerton Armed Forces Day Parade is billed as being the oldest and largest one in the country.  I don't know if that is really true, but Andrea and I thought we should take it in at least once.  Just our bad luck, though: it rained (and never got above 55 degrees) throughout the two-hour parade.
       The parade marshal was Major General Richard Mills, USMC.
