PENN CAMBRIA FOOTBALL The season is now over. Penn Cambria ended the 2012 Football season with a respectful 6-5 record this year. There were many very good games and a couple disappointments. Too many injuries to some of the best players haunted the team all season. We, however, can be justly proud of these varsity players who gave us an exciting year of football. Look for Jake Hurley to excel the next two years. For a sophomore he played excellent games and made many important plays.

VETERANS DAY Son Steve and I took a trip to my son John’s home in Edgewater Md on Saturday. While there we got to see the new home he is leasing on the Chesapeake Bay and also his company warehouse in Edgewater. A private beach adorns the back yard of his new home with plenty of space for fishing and crabbing. I look forward to visiting him in the early summer.

On Sunday morning, November 11th , Steve and I ventured over to Washington to visit the Vietnam, Korean and WWll memorials, It was a beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the 70s. There were nice crowds at all three sites The First Air Calvary had an exceptionally large group of visitors to the Vietnam Memorial. They stand out with their Calvary hats and a yellow shoulder patch with a black horse on it. They were originally the 11th Air Assault Division at Fort Benning, Georgia until being sent to Vietnam in the fall of 1965 as the 1st Air Cav.
