Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day to my American visitors. This is a photo I took yesterday of my grandfathers final resting place, located in the Willamette National Cemetery in Portland. The sea of flags is truly a sight to see.

  1. Thank you for posting this. It is such an amazing site to see. Both of my parents as well as my wife parents are buried up there.

  2. Yes same to you from Canada.

    Been watching it all on t.v

  3. A very colourful photo expessing everything about memorial day.

  4. I was just there yesterday too. It is indeed a memorable sight to see all the flags next to each Veteran's resting place.

  5. Love that beautiful American blue. I remember.

    Happy Blue Monday, Sarah.

  8. I made a mistake so here it is again.

    I am 100% in rememberance for Memorial Day. Amen.

    To say Happy as I see people say. I mean who

    ever in authority made the happy in there.

    To me it is not happy when the soldiers and veterans either die or come back with out limbs.

    It saddens me. I watched your President stand

    there and other officials. Almost in tears.

    My two brothers came home wounded. One had a

    leg with steel rod inside.

    My other brother loss his

    hearing from shell bombing. Stone deaf.

    So being a Canadian it is an harship Day To

    say Happy.

    We call it Poppy Day.

    Now I am not trying to stir up the pot. Just

    wondering. And maybe know one knows.

  9. A magnificent photo and a very touching one. A day to remember all our Vets who have gone to their final resting place. Thank you Sarah and Happy Memorial Day!

  10. Indeed all the flags are a sight to see. It is so sad that they have to represent so much tragedy and sadness,

  11. Beautiful and moving photo. Happy RT!
