This year, Peter was diagnosed with cancer. But, he refused to let his illness keep him from asking his wife and friends to help him stand when the band played “God Bless the USA” and the “Star Spangled Banner,” nor when the planes flew over! He couldn’t hold his flag this year, but was determined to be on that beach with his friends holding it high and cheering on for what he holds most dear.
We wouldn’t have the freedom to live this life and be on the water without your protection!
