Newmarket ceremony, VMI:

The chaplain says , "Let the Institute be heard from." That's what Jackson said as he ordered his flank attack at Chancellorsville. "The Institute will be heard from today."

I will go to my grave proud of my son John Tyler naming his Bradleys Mathew, Mark, Luke and John after the four guns of the Rockbridge artillery on VMI's parade ground when he took them to Iraq. He flew the Newmarket flag from each. He made the Institute heard from there.

That might of even been more touching to me than the changing of the guard up there in DC. Love those bagpipers. My little Scottish wife, bless her little pea picking heart wants me to find someone to play Amazing Grace on bagpipes at her funeral.

I'm just hoping I go first because I don't have the foggiest idea where I'll come up with a bagpiper around here.
