It was a great day for a party with cool weather and fortunately the rain held off until the festivities were over. With the help of "trained" guides like Pete Gile and Troy Newman, lots of youngsters had the opportunity to catch nice sized fish casting from the shore. However, this was an army party after all, so after the youngsters finished their battle in the trees. Lunch featured fruit "grenades" in the shape of an American flag, ham sandwiches on "rations" (dinner rolls) baby carrot "missiles," "B-24 bombers" (airplane frosted sugar cookies), camouflage col- ored jelly bean "bullets," whole apple "bombs," Capri-Sun"army juice," and Doritos "battle chips." Child friends of Peter's also re- ceived a bar of soap with a plastic army man inside and their own dog tag stamped, "Faithful friend of Peter Newman on his 6th birthday, May 7th, 2015, Courtland, Ken." Peter was thrilled with all of his great gifts, however, everyone enjoyed their own treat of camouflage cake in the shape of an Army tank, complete with area wheels and chocolate bar tracks.
