Happy Memorial Day! God Bless America!!! What a wonderful event that Damon & I were fortunate enough to attend again today. The President laying a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknowns, and then addressing the public. His speech was very solemn, as well as encouraging. He promised not to send our men & women in uniform into battle unless it was absolutely necessary, and if he had to do so, he would ensure they would have the best possible equipment. Wow, how very powerful. It was a wonderful speech.
The first picture is of President Obama with Admiral Mullen, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The second picture is President Obama during his speech. The third picture is Audie Murphy's tombstone, the most decorated hero in all of America. For some reason, people place pennies at his grave. The Superintendent of Arlington has no idea why, or how it all got started.
Lastly, this is a 12x12 scrapbook page that just came to me. I will re-post it when I get Damon's pictures on it. I just thought it was appropriate for today. I made it late yesterday. Here's the details:
Ink: Night of Navy
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White
Please remember all of our soldiers, sailors, marines and airmen serving their country so bravely. Say a special prayer for them and their loved ones. They are America's Finest!
God Bless America.
