~ Taylor Lautner Bracelet & a Visit to the Marine Corps Museum

 

First, let’s get the bracelet out of the way.  I promised my daughter the bracelet once I had a chance to take photos of it.  If you’re a big Twilight/New Moon Team Jacob fan, this Taylor Lautner bracelet is up your alley.  (Sorry, as with all of my jewelry–not for sale!)  Click on each of the photos for a closer look.

 

Stuff:  7 Gypsies – bracelet, charms; Jolee’s – star charms; Tim Holtz – type charms

===========================================

Last Sunday, Brian decided to do a site visit to see the conditions of the roads and potential widening at MCB Quantico.  So, we did a drive through the base and ended up at the National Museum of the Marine Corps.  I’m glad we stopped to listen to the docent at the Iwo Jima portion.  He was a Marine who lived through Iwo Jima and is now a volunteer telling the story of the men that fought and secured the area.  His name is Frank Matthews.  I wish him many more strong years to come.

There was an exhibit at the front of the museum of Marines who were killed in Iraq in 2005 from Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 25th Marine Regiment, 4th Marine Division.  Family members donated their boots for this display.   For more information and to see paintings of the men, click here:  Lima Company Memorial

  1. Glad to hear about your visit to the museum, Frank is awesome! We’ll have the Lima Company memorial until March.

  2. Lima Company is from our area in Ohio…what a tragedy for our community. The memorial is an amazing and moving tribute to brave marines.
