My mom, who was just short of twelve when he died, had been born just two years after Gran had married Granddad, having been conceived during a brief leave he'd had in the fall of 1958, when he and Gran had arranged a 'hop' on an Air Force cargo plane and had flown to Hawaii for a week of passion in Waikiki.
Mom had many stories of Granddad during her childhood and pictures that she had collected from Gran while growing up in Leonardtown, Maryland.
Regardless of service affiliation, The Army's Old Guard had provided honor guards for service members buried at Arlington Cemetery for decades when Granddad was assigned there in the mid-to-late 1950s.
Being from Minnesota himself, he had been proud to learn that The Old Guard traced some of its unit history to frontier units that had served at Fort Snelling, Minnesota, during the Black Hawk Wars of the 1830s.
She and the asshole were also not planning to marry anytime soon; which meant my alimony payments kept coming to her until they did.After fifteen years of marriage--mostly a period of strife and turmoil--I was now a thirty-nine-year-old bachelor again.My ex-wife, Francine, along with her lover, had really taken me to the cleaners.My name is Louis Chandler, by the way--Lou to my friends--and "Lou-Zer" to my ex-wife. Well, my job had brought me here--my new job, I should say.
Even as the divorce papers had been served, my now ex-father-in-law had fired me quicker than a circus cannon.
