Memorial Day



Monday is Memorial day in the United States where they Honor the fallen who died in the service of their country I think these photos are more relevant today on my blog today.

  1. Great post! I notice they knew enough about the unknown solider to gage that he was Jewish.

    Thank you for linking up with Cemetery Sunday

  4. A nice perspective on both these shots. Seeing the Star of David is unusual in military cemeteries.

  7. I don't remember when Memorial Day was established, but it was begun to remember the soldiers who died on both the sides of the Civil War. Your photos are breathtaking.

  8. This is such a beautiful place - all of your photos are!
    I really need to come visit.

    I also appreciate that you know the meaning of Memorial Day, when so many Americans don't! I am a US Navy veteran and so many people thanked me for my service. Hello! This day is not about me, I'm still alive!!

    1. People who gave their lives need to be remembered which is why I photograph war graves especially the forgotten ones in the smaller churches. There are a few American cemetery's I really need to visit in this country.
