Fredericksburg, TX September, 2008

The Museum of the Pacific War sponsored a Symposium on the retaking of the Philippines and the battle of Iwo Jima. Bill was invited to be on one of the panels for Iwo Jima.  He said it was fun and we all thought he did a great job.
Because Bill was a panelist, we attended were invited to two beautiful, delicious, banquets and several other special events.

We three sisters and our friend Sandie Townsend helped the participants sign the poster designed especially for this event. It is always a good opportunity to get to know the veterans and authors.

Lunch with Kelly and Triumph in San Antonio. What a little man he is!

The Biedermann home is called Ryneth.  As you can see, we are having breakfast-as is.
Art Burry stayed with us and he was recognized at the symposium for riding out six days in a life raft after his engine quit in one of the most powerful hurricanes to hit the Pacific. This storm crippled Admiral Halsey's fleet.

Introducing Triumph to Howard Townsend.
An added bonus of the trip to Fredericksburg was that the "Holmsley Siblings" were together.
Brother Tom had just returned from the Republican Convention where he served as a delegate from Texas.
