Memorial Day


On this Memorial Day I'd to share some of pictures that I've taken at Arlington National Cemetery. May we never forget.























Over 300,000 veterans are resting in Arlington National Cemetery. Each one has a name. Most you won't recognize, but some you almost certainly will.

Boyington, Gregory



Donovan, William J.



Doubleday, Abner



Evers, Medgar W.



Hayes, Ira H.



Louis, Joseph B.



Marvin, Lee



Miller, A. Glenn



Murphy, Audie L.



O'Neill, William O.



Powers, Francis G.



Puller, Lewis Jr.




Known only to God.
There are a lot of these in Arlington and other national cemeteries.


Enjoy your barbecues this week-end, but be sure to take some time to reflect on the Americans who sacrificed so much for this country and the freedom of the world.

  9. We had the privilege of having a former Tomb of the Unknown Soldier guard in our Park for several days. He served in the 60's and stopped over to thank Tom for flying the flag which we have on high over our MH.
