Memorial Day reflections

This town was hosting the "Moving Wall," which is a replica of the Vietnam memorial in Washington D.C. that travels all over the country. The town also set up a large flag display and each flag had a tag. The tags were in memory of a service member or sponsored by a family.

It was stunning.

And, as much as I would like to take credit for this beautiful photo, I'm pretty sure it was God (and Nikon), but I am grateful.

This photo was very emotional for me to take. I have no idea who the woman is, but she had her family with her, while she found more than one name on the wall to gather her impressions.

America's quiet daily celebration of the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

I hope you were able to remember those in service to our country and their families in some special way this weekend.
