Brilliant. Thank you for reminding us that Memorial Day isn't about beaches, bargains or barbeques.

It never fails to move me when I visit a national cemetery. A year ago, I was at the American cemetery over Omaha Beach in France around memorial day, and that was actually one of the highlights of the trip. Many people paid a great price to allow us to live in this wonderful country, and it is up to this generation to make sure we don't drop the ball. I wonder if we are up to it........

An excellent shot of the alignment of the memorial headstones. Are these graves of soldiers from Iraq? I don't mean to be unkind asking... - Dave

Thanks for reminding us about freedom. I like the post below also. Great photographs.
I just had to stop and comment.

I try to visit regularily,
but don't alway leave comments.
Too many good blogs,
so little time.

Alaska Sunday is posted.
Come visit,

If those who starts the wars fought in them, there'd be less of these, me thinks.

We honour our veterans and our fallen servicemen on November 11, Armistice Day.
So we had our long weekend last week, Victoria Day, in Canada.

I completely agree with the title of your post. Wonderful post, indeed!

I like this tribute and I am grateful for the opportunity to be here in the US. I know my life would be so very different had we had to stay in Vietnam after the war. Very nice post, Sue.
