Veteran's Day Dinner at The Bomber

We celebrated Veterans Day with our friends Jeff and Julie Oerding and other veteran friends on Saturday night.  We at in the museum at The Bomber restaurant complex in Milwaukie, OR.  It has been years since Bill and I took the boys to The Bomber for breakfast to see the B-17 bomber that they have there.  And we had never been to their museum.

The program was the Lacey family talking about their quest to restore the bomber to its original glory and maybe even make it flyable again.  And they told many stories about their father/grandfather and how he came to bring the plane from Oklahoma to Oregon.  It is quite a story.  They also talked about some of the veterans that they honor with exhibits in their museum.

Our friend, Ernie Wakehouse, is a WWII and Korean War ace fighter pilot.  He turned 90 on Thursday so we celebrated his birthday with cake.

It was a very nice evening and fun to see a new spot honoring veterans.
