Decoration Day

Before we called it Memorial Day..it was Decoration Day. It was always May 30th and it began in the South with women decorating the graves of those soldiers that died during the civil war.

Avenue of Flags  Single flag

It should always be the day that we pause to think about all the soldiers that died during their service to our country:)

  3. It stirs my heart to see those flags flying, and yes, I said prayers of thanks to all those who serve and have served our country in uniform.

  4. My father-in-law - who has since 'passed' - - was one of the WWII Veterans. He was fortunate to come home but ended up with a back injury that plagued him the rest of his life. We are indeed blessed to live in this great country.
