Veterans Day







It has become a tradition here in many communities to fly Fields of Honor for our soldiers that gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country in the current wars. Each flag has a gold ribbon with the personal information of the soldier and is flown for the week before Veterans Day.
All those American Flags make for a stunning sight, and a beautiful photograph. It's not pleasant to think about why they fly or how many are there. I only hope the meaning and remembrance isn't lost among the beauty.
One should never let their feelings about war mar what our armed forces do for us.
Without them the world would be a much worse place to live, and for this we must thank them and honor those that have given their life for our freedom and safety.
