Project 366: Day 149

Today is Memorial Day. Memorial day is a day Americans take the time to remember the men and women who died serving their country and the United States military.

Today, my Uncle is more than likely taking part in the annual Memorial Day Parade on Martha’s Vineyard. A retired Marine Corp. Captain, Uncle Gene fought in World War II.

My thoughts and prayers are with those mourning the loss of their loved ones, who died fighting for our country. I will never forget you.

    1. That’s my Uncle on the left. 🙂

      By the way, MJ, as you celebrate your citizenship anniversary, I thought of you. A friend of mine became an American citizen on Friday. His family is from Newfoundland and Alberta.

    1. You used your liberties today with the editing of your vector drawing. As I said on your post – you utilized your liberties given to you by our fallen soldiers. Kind of. Maybe.

  1. Nice tribute, Lenore. I wish I’d gotten a photo of a little town we drove through yesterday, proudly posting their flags along the street. It did my heart good to see the display.

    1. Thank you, Peg. I was unable to find a picture of Uncle Gene from this year’s celebration – though he did attend. I’m a little worried about his health. I am glad I was able to get this post up this year.

  2. The first picture really touches my heart, Lenore. It reminds me that it’s the every day folk who fight for our freedom.
