In Memory

(This photo was taken in Alaska, showing the sun shining through the fog.
I found it on the web but lost the name of the photographer. If I can locate it,
I will repost the photo with his name. This is a stunning photo and deserves credit.)

This is the memorial to our fallen heroes at Hillcrest Cemetery. We lost another hero last week:
Major Jason E. George, 38, was an Army Reservist assigned to the
252nd Combined Arms Battalion, Fayetteville, N.C.

Words always fail me on this date. We fly our flag and remember our men and women who serve and who have served, giving their lives for our country. May God bless them, their families, and our country.

Beautiful photo. We fly our flag and remember those past and those presently serving. All gave some...

Big hugs, honey. I'll miss reading your blog while we are away, but will catch up when we return.

That is definitely a gorgeous shot, wish I'd taken it! It truly does reflect what Memorial Day is all about, too, as it makes you pause and reflect all those who have gone before us and made the world a better place by their sacrifice and service.

The flag shot is incredible! The flag at the swamp is always flying. I watched a show about a Navy Seal last night, that really broke my heart. So many sacrifices...
