Memorial Day (Early)


In our community, there are several Memorial Day observances the Sunday before Memorial Day (which was today).  We usually make it to at least one, as my son's Boy Scout Troop participates.  This is from today's ceremony at Oak Lawn Cemetery, which is not far from our home.  I was really struck by this soldier supporting one of the older Veterans.

Not a great technical photograph, it was midday on a very bright (and contrasty) day.  But it catches (I hope) the spirit of the moment.

Other Memorial Day photos from last year here and here.
