Memorial Day 2009

Old Glory at Patriot's Point

It is Memorial Day here in the US. It is the day that we set aside to remember the men and women who lost their lives in service to our country.

This photograph was taken a couple of months ago when my son and I visited the USS Yorktown memorial at Patriot's Point in Charleston, SC. The island of the Yorktown is visible in the background. Since this Yorktown was named in honor of the aircraft carrier which was sunk at the battle of Midway during WWII, I felt this photograph was a fitting image for today's post.

Always remember ...
