Finding the grave of James Kerley
The grave of 1st. Lt. James W. Kerley came to our attention after the author of a book on WWII airmen let us know about Kerley's distinguished service and tragic death on only his fourth mission in France in 1944. The Field of Honor section at Boise's Morris Hill Cemetery is rich with history and opportunity to honor our war dead.

Emerald Ash Borer
In the 1990s a new species was brought to the United States known as the emerald ash borer. This Asian beetle was brought over on wooden platforms that were shipped to Michigan. The beetles then spread to the forest in Michigan. The emerald ash borers' diet consists of the tissue in ash trees. First, they go inside the tree and eat the tissue that channels water through the tree. This causes the tree to have dark patches on its bark. Over time, the tree slowly dies. This species is an example of an invasive species. An invasive species is a species that usually brought into an environment where it has no natural predators. This species then become over populated and causes other species to die out.

Andrew Johnson Cemetery, walkthrough Greene Co. TN.
Andrew Johnson National Cemetery was established in 1906 on a hilly tract of land outside Greeneville, TN. It included the gravesite of Andrew Johnson, 17th President of the United States, and a small burial ground for his immediate family. In 1901, Johnson’s daughter, Margaret Johnson Patterson willed the burial ground to the federal government for use as a public park in commemoration of the former president.
The National Cemetery was administered by the War Department until 1942, when it was designated a National Monument and transferred to the NPS. The cultural landscape includes historic features from the two periods of significance, associated first with the use of the land by the Johnson family as a burial ground, and later the establishment and development of the National Cemetery by the War Department. During the first period of significance (Johnson Family Burial Ground, 1875-1906), monuments were erected within and around an elaborate cast iron fence. Contributing features from this time period, including the Andrew Johnson Monument (1878), are present today.
Most of the remaining historic features date to the second period of significance (War Department era, 1906 1942), which encompasses the development of the National Cemetery landscape under the War Department. This period is reflected by the presence of features associated with the original War Department design, including buildings and structures (cemetery wall and gate, lodge, stable, rostrum), roads (Monument Drive, Service Road), the original nine grave sections, walkways, flagstaff, and drainage features. The World War I Machine Gun Monument (1931) also dates to this era.

Individual features and their arrangement across the landscape convey a clear connection with the two periods of significance. The purpose of this cemetery as it was so designated in 1906 – to honor the veterans of our armed forces and commemorate the 17th U.S. President – has not been altered. When NPS policy put an end to burials in the National Cemetery in 1942, public outcry was so persistent that officials overturned the policy. The original site mission to preserve the cemetery as it was at the end of the War Department era in 1942 was compromised by the plan to maximize burial space within the cemetery.
After the burial of Johnson in 1875, the gravesite expanded into a small family plot with the Johnson Monument as its nexus. Through its architecture and arrangement, the Johnson family plot conveys characteristics of the rural cemetery movement and the romantic ideals that characterized American funerary architecture in the late Victorian era.
The rural cemetery movement began in 1831 and went on to forge a new class of cemetery. Skilled architects were employed in the designs that were characterized by their location on the outskirts of cities and the presence of winding pathways, vistas and architecture that fostered a contemplative atmosphere. The Johnson family burial ground conveys the defining characteristics of the movement. The family plot was established at an elevated site on the outskirts of town with expansive views. A winding road provided the ascent to the gravesite typical in rural cemetery designs, intended to foster an appreciation of the setting. The War Department began their transformation of the landscape in 1906 and retained these features.

After the transfer of the family plot from Johnson’s heir to the federal government, the War Department took steps to begin the transformation of the landscape into a traditional national cemetery in 1908. Andrew Johnson National Cemetery was developed following design standards established under General Montgomery C. Meigs in the 1870s. The General Development Plan of 1908 included the layout of the cemetery lodge, cemetery roads, memorial approach and walkways, flagstaff, stable, nine grave sections, cemetery wall and gate, drainage features, and the cemetery rostrum.

Memorial Day Flyover - Helicopter and jets over the Hudson River for NYC Fleet Week
Unfortunately I stopped filming right before the Missing Man maneuver. It was quite exciting to hear the roar of the jets! Later, the jets flew back South over the city and you could see the vortex trails coming off the jets' wingtips.
A commenter gave a description of the aircraft - Lead jet and -2 are FA-18Fs from VFA-32, -3 and -4 are FA-18Cs from VFA-37

S.C. Highway 39 Timelapse - Monetta to Interstate 20
I wasn't really driving that fast. This video was sped up and given video game-like HUD to give the effect that I was driving fast.
This timelapse is of S.C. Highway 39 from U.S. Highway 1 just south of Monetta to Interstate 20 about halfway between Columbia and Augusta.
Out of complete boredom, I decided to drive out to the extremely hilly Aiken County and check out some of the scenery. This particular highway, signed as S.C. Highway 39 and part of the old Ninety-Six Indian Trail, connects Monetta with Interstate 20 about 30 miles from Augusta and 30 miles from Columbia. Continuing southbound from Interstate 20, Highway 39 runs on a southeast trek towards Wagener, and then turns south to Springfield, and lastly runs on a southwest trek to U.S. Highway 278. If you were to go northbound on Highway 39, you would end on on a northwesterly route towards Saluda and then the east side of Lake Greenwood, and lastly continuing north to U.S. Highway 221 south of Laurens.
