Today I honor the men in my family who served in the Armed Forces and fought in WW1 and WW11.

My Grandfather, William Preston Williams served in the Navy during WW1.  Seen here with his family in 1917.  Right to left, Preston, Eva, Tom Lyle, Mabel, Noel J. Their parents, Susan and TJ Williams.

SIDE NOTE:  My cousin, Noel A. Williams son, Chuck aka BB1, is picking up Mike Love, at the Beach Boy Jet in Santa Barbara today and will take him to lunch then escort him to The Beach Boy Memorial Day Concert, at the Santa Barbara Bowl for sound check.  Pictures and stories will be posted so stay tuned.
