Just to let you know that James Winsmann (Dana Buchanan Winsmann's)
husband arrived home (Florida) on Tuesday, May 13 from Iraq. While in
Iraq he was promoted to the rank of Major. He says he is so glad to be
home. He was out mowing their front lawn and Dana was teasing him about
having to do chores now. He stopped and very seriously said something
like "I appreciate what we have here in America even more now and I even
appreciate the chores. Just seeing the green is beautiful. Having
bullets and ordnance flying by your plane tends to put things into
perspective." Thought you'd like to know that he is all right.

Ferguson Buchanan. He married Maryilyn Terhune. He was a Navy Seal war
