The VFW Post 7395 laid a wreath on the memorial for the 17 men of my community who died in service to our country.
The flag of the Army, Marine Corps, Air Force, Navy and Coast Guard were snapping in the breeze.
The Ladies Axillary of VFW Post 7395 laid a wreath and cross on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
This is part of the group that gathered to share this ceremony today.
The ceremony ended in a gun salute and the playing of taps (posted with permission). The young lady playing the bugle was amazing! Blogspot will not load my video, but you can go to my facebook page and see/listen to the short video. https://www.facebook.com/susan.ryanwalter
Thank you to all the veterans and their families for the sacrifices you have made in the defense of our country. Thank you to all who are currently service in our armed forces, your sacrifice and dedication are very much appreciated.
In honor of my father and uncle who served in WWII, my cousins who both served in Vietnam, my daughter and her husband currently in TANG, and my daughter in the Army who has served in Iraq and Afghanistan and just signed up for an additional 6 year hitch. May God bless and keep you all!
