WE REMEMBER YOUR SACRIFICE TODAY AND EVERY DAY…
Many family and friends were at Fort Logan National Cemetery on this Memorial Day weekend to honor and remember those who rest here. I did not wish to invade their privacy and waited for the rain to fall, hoping they would take shelter before taking these pictures. For the few who stood fast, regardless of the thunder and lightening of the storm, I apologize for the intrusion.
Thank you to all of our service members who have given of themselves for our freedom. Let’s remember what this holiday stands for. I think the spirit of Memorial Day is simply stated by President Abraham Lincoln and Joseph Campbell:
“A nation that does not honor it’s hero’s, will not long endure.” Abraham Lincoln
“A hero is someone who has given his or her life to something bigger than oneself.” Joseph Campbell
