My father's Samurai Sword from World War II

This morning I stopped by the archives of the Greenwich Historical Society. Years ago I decided to donate a special gift I received from my late-father on my 13th birthday.

Dad said that he acquired the sword in Tianjin, China. It was the day the Japanese Empire surrendered. Dad was at the train station in Tianjin.

Paying Respects

I arrived from Honolulu to Greenwich, Connecticut last night (Thursday, September 5, 2013). This is a picture of me with my father's memorial stone. It was taken this morning, Friday, September 6.

The memorial stone was placed about a month ago in the cemetery of the First Congregational Church in Old Greenwich. My thanks goes to Halsey Tuthill and the staff of Peacock Memorials in Valhalla, New York.

I am staying in Greenwich's downtown area. I took the train to Old Greenwich, and a few minutes later I was at Dad's grave site. The design includes our family crest at the top.
