It's a nice breezy overcast day,
so I decided to take a trip to P-Town ( Portsmouth VA )
to thank some Confederate Veterans
First order of business was get Freddy Ready -
Can't go to P-Town without puttin on your best !
Me and Freddy went to --
I took a small bag of Remember coins,
I make the coins for a number of reasons, including to be left at the graves of Confederate Veterans.
I should have taken a bucket load !
When I arrived the grounds keeper said he had no problem with me placing the coins.
The first Veteran was --
He was an engineer of the CSS Virginia.
Then I started a short walk to the Confederate section--
Along the way I found several Veterans---
Freddy had my back !
There were a lot of Confederate Veterans to thank
I got to the Designated Veterans section ---
The stone itself was from "Dry Dock One"
where the CSS Virginia was built.
( I've worked in that Dry Dock )
I did not have enough coins but I placed all I had ---
The Confederate section was well kept and was a wonderful spot
to stop by and REMEMBER !
I was told the Battle flag was replaced with the VA flag to help reduce vandalism.
Next up me and Freddy went to the Confederate monument --
Freddy stood guard ---
Then me and Freddy went back to Suffolk and had lunch ---
