Decoration Day

I was up early this morning and drove into D.C. with my camera.

There were dozens of wreaths staged for placement later today at the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial. The smell of flowers was overwhelming.



 Bouquets placed along the side of the District of Columbia's War Memorial. For years we'd stop here and sigh at the neglect. It has finally been renovated and is a peaceful spot for contemplation.

One of the ways to enter the WWII Memorial.
 
For those of us who have lost a family member in service to our country, please take time today to remember their sacrifice.
