FAITH - FAMILY - FRIENDS

is not free.
One of the flags surrounding the Washington Monument.
Arlington National Cemetary - headstones as far as the eye can see, and farther.
I did not realize how many soldiers buried here had family members buried with them. Mostly wives, but a large number of young children, too.
Vietnam War Memorial - the number of names etched in stone is absolutely overwhelming.
A momento left at the base of the monument honoring one of the fallen soldiers.
I am so thankful to all those who put their lives on the line so that I could have the freedoms I enjoy - almost without thought. Your sacrifice does not go unnoticed!
Great pictures! Aren't the memorials heart-rending?
