I haven't posted anything in a week as I've been offline while visiting my daughter and her Air Force husband in San Antonio, Texas.
I was happy to see my daughter and I was thrilled to finally see the Alamo (photo above).
I saw John Wayne's film The Alamo when I was a kid, which led me to read several books on the Alamo's heroic last stand.
As a student of history, I could sense and envision the guts and glory of the brave men who gave their lives there as I walked through the compound.
You can visit the Alamo's website and take a virtual tour via the below link:
