Thank you! Memorial Day is not national BBQ Day. Thank you to all that have given so much.
Thanks for taking the time to help us all remember.
That national cemetery on Oahu (bottom photo) is mind-bendingly beautiful. Thanks for sharing your photos, Dave.
I’ve established a personal tradition – I like to hit the road on Memorial Day on my motorcycle, and visit a few cemeteries in the valley. They NEVER look better than on Memorial Day. The State Veterans’ Cemetery and Morris Hill in Boise always look wonderful, decked out in red, white and blue. Other favorites: Emmett, Melba, Parma, and Nyssa, OR (all have commanding overlooks of the valley below). Small-town folks seem particularly patriotic.
Heartfelt thanks to the families and loved ones of those who sacrificed all for our freedom, and God bless America!
Nice photos of our flag.
It bums me out when people are so negligent with the American flag.
