The Fifty-Second Skateboard Donation

HUGE thanks to my old neighbors, Char and Ariana, for the fifty-second skateboard donation. The design for this board came from Char and represents the military divisions he served with. Listening to Char explain what these logos represent is truly mind-blowing. While their designs are simple, the bonds and memories associated with each are more than simple, they are riveting.

I find this board so compelling and while Char suggests the recipient provide an essay on what these symbols mean (probably not going to hold the young chap to that), I am certainly going to circle back and quiz him, as I will hopefully be buffed up by then. To help us all understand the symbols, here are some online resources: 25th Infantry Division - Tropic Lightning, 35th Infantry Regiment - The Cacti, and the Combat Infantry Badge.

Thank you so much Char for your past and present service, for while you have served our country, you also continue to provide crucial education...and now skateboards!!! Youdaman, Char!!!

Sincerely,

SPM
