It's been a rainy weekend so we didn't play volleyball on Saturday evening, and I didn't get out and do much of anything.
This memorial is next to the old power plant building that I showed you a couple of days ago. It is for George H. Cannon, who was killed on Dec. 7, 1941 (many people don't know that Midway was also attacked the same day as Pearl Harbor). He was the first Marine to be awarded the Medal of Honor in WWII. He was injured when the Japanese bombed Midway and he made sure all his men were helped before he was, and then he stayed in the command post until he was forcibly taken out for medical attention. He died later from loss of blood.
