Thank you to all who fought for our freedom

I almost missed the parade and memorial service in town.  Luckily the band meets a half a block away and started practicing.  I made it in time.
Memorial Day Parade - 5/26/2014
It is a small parade including color guard,  living veterans that are still capable of marching and the local school band.

A short wreath laying service at the local veterans park which is followed by a short Catholic Mass in the nearby cemetery.   This year I skipped going to the mass. (I'm not Catholic. )

Flag raising ceremony
Memorial Day is a Federal designated day to say thanks to all those who have served for our freedom!  A day to acknowledge to the families whose loved ones made the ultimate sacrifice and to remember the POWs that have never returned.

A time of reflection
After the service,  one veteran sat down to watch the family with young children explore the tank in the park.   As I saw the reflective look on his face, I couldn't resist taking a picture.
Don't forget everyday to thank those around you for their military service.
