Grumman Memorial Park

Hewwwow!  Finnackles here.  I wanna show you a little trip my Momma and 
I took one rainy Saturday.  We headed out for a little ride to the Grumman Memorial Park.  
Do you know about Grumman?  If you are an American and are proud of our WWII 
vets and the advancements we made during the Space Race, you should.  Even though 
wiki is what wiki is, click here for a little history about Grumman.

Here we are!  Momma said it's important to learn about history stuffs, 
so off we went to read about some of the stuffs they had out.


Runway gear:

Then Momma let me practice jumping and down off things 
because I needed a reading break...

Yowsa!  Look at that!

And this!

And this:

In case you can't read it, it says:

In honor of the men and women of Grumman who served in the armed forces of the United States and in memory of those who made the supreme sacrifice in World War II.

  25. Thanks for the interesting and historical tour, Finn!
    Well done!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  26. Great post Finn. My Human Grandad, a WW2 veteran pilot, would be so pleased that those who built the planes that helped win the war are also remembered.
    Toodle pip!

  27. Holy cow, Finn! You really got a history lesson on that day trip. That is really neat I never knew about Grunnum park but my grandpa fought in WWII.

  28. Really cool for you! That must have been a fun time :)

  29. Thanks for showing the pics, feels like I was there too.

  30. Thanks for the history lesson. I kind of remember learning about this in history class a few semesters ago.

  31. That looks like a great park. You are lucky that you were able to visit there Finn.

  32. Finn ~ I love seeing what is around where other people live. Lee said her father was in World War II in the South Pacific and he had pictures of a lot of those old planes. What an interesting place to tour.
    Thanks for being a friend
