Veterans Day Photos

On Monday a friend and I decided to take a drive to visit the grave of her dad. A veteran buried in the Veterans Home Cemetary near Retsil, WA. It was a stormy and windy day adding a sullen ambiance to the place. She didn't know exactly where the grave marker was at first.

We found ourselves going from one section of the place reading each name on each marker, one by one. This turned out to be interesting and profound search. Veterans from most all of America's wars, including our Civil War, lay here at rest. Finally we found her dad's marker and she placed a single rose at the grave.
