Look to the far left at that young sailor...that was my step father when he was young and way before he met my mother. His name was Edward C. Patterson (Pat), from Ohio. Pat served on the Presidential staff during Eisenhower, Kennedy and Johnson. Getting out of the helicopter for those who may not know, is President Eisenhower and Charles De Gaull.
I was 27 when he and mother met and later married. When I would go visit them Pat and I would sit up way into the a.m. and I listened to his stories of being stationed at Camp David.
He was an ornery boy, he would say, and bought himself a few bar stools in his time. When off duty and leaving Camp David he was required to surrender all identification ~ not just him, but anyone assigned duty there.
Oh but I could tell you some interesting stories, and wish he were here so we could chat once again. Love and miss you Pat.
