Remember ~ 2014


And they who for their country die shall fill an honored grave, 
for glory lights the soldier's tomb, and beauty weeps the brave. 


...Joseph Rodman Drake 
(1795-1820)
Memorial/Decoration Day 

My father put these flags out in our local cemetery 
on behalf of the VFW he belongs to. 
 I am so proud of him!  

Y'all have a safe holiday weekend.
