Memorial Day weekend in 2015, we RV’d to Washington D.C. to take part in Rolling Thunder. This was our 4th Rolling Thunder “Run for the Wall”. While we were in D.C., we also visited the grave of a Fallen Hero friend, CSM Michael Buxbaum, and our Coast Guard Iraq KIA Nathan Bruckenthal in Arlington National Cemetery and the Pentagon 9/11 Memorial.
We weren’t prepared for the history lesson we learned; one that wasn’t talked about in our studies in our high school history lessons. We’ve visited several Civil War Battlefields in the past, however, nothing ever prepared us for the experience we felt from visiting this site; Camp Sumter Confederate Prison Site at Andersonville, GA
