    I recently met Mr. Bearss in Gettysburg back in October. The ironic thing about the meeting was that the previous night I was in Quantico Va. talking to a retired Marine Corps Colonel who is on the Board of the Marine Corps Museum, and we were talking about the voice over that Mr. Bearss did for the Museum in regards to beach landings from a Higgans boat. The Colonel also does staff rides for the Corps at Gettysburg.
    After driving up from Quantico my wife and I decided to stop at McDonalds for lunch, and there was Ed Bearss sitting there with a group of Louisiana Tigers that he was giving a tour for. I then introduced myself and we had a nice conversation. Mr. Bearss was very kind to let my wife take our picture. This meeting was the highlight of our trip.
    I wish I could be in Houston for his talk.
