Memorial Day, 2008

A brief time-out from the Landmark of the Month for a few images taken in and around DC this Memorial Day.

Arlington National Cemetery: "Where Honor Lives"

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier

Words from JFK's Inaugural Address:

"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of Liberty."

Vietnam Memorial

Right in the middle of the image:

Sanford L Nelson (23 Sep 1946 - 06 Dec 1966); Laurens, SC
Ginger's Uncle

Stanley R Pettit (20 Dec 1948 - 15 Sep 1968); Liberty, SC

Eddie Pettit's brother

A note left at the base by some anonymous stranger:

"Elwood Randall Henridx; A brave soldier that gave his life for Freedom."
