Memorial Day Tribute to my Dad

Remembering my Dad, Chief Warrant Officer David G. Stout, who spent 21 years serving his country, in Anchorage Alaska, Seattle Washington, Arlington Virginia (The Pentagon), Panama Canal Zone, Ft. Meade Maryland, Saigon Vietnam, and Naples Italy. Couldn't be prouder for your faithful service.  I love you.

Thank you to Larissa Holland who shared this moving song and video, and knows it's creators. It will surely touch your heart and help each of us realize how many paid the ultimate price for the freedoms we often take for granted. As a little girl, we lived across from Arlington Cemetery and the sight of that many tombstones, row upon row, along with the "Tomb of the Unknown Soldier" is something I will never forget.


  1. I don't think I knew that Grandpa worked at the Pentagon! Love this post and sure love him :)

  2. Thanks Linda for this tribute to your dad. He wore his uniform proudly and served his country with honor. I sure do miss that man of mine.


  3. He was such an honorable man and is missed very much.
