I will again be quoting form Giants of Science, A brief Sketch of the Public Service of George Davidson. I am pleased that my readers have given such a approving response to his story.

Being Memorial Day Week, I had read an experience by author Lynne Hartke. I want to share it with you as I think it is pretty amazing. Lynne was attending a Memorial Day ceremony at a nearby military cemetery. In the crowd of red, white, and blue outfits she noticed a woman standing in a khaki uniform.
