Small town America on Memorial Day

Little towns across the US mirror each other today.  Parades, BBS, baseball games, family gatherings.

Our town (population 500ish) had the annual parade and chicken BBQ hosted by the volunteer fire department.

The whole town looks patriotic.

Maybe because of my Naval service years, or maybe I am just very patriotic, but this holiday always brings tears to my  eyes.

Thank you to those that have the ultimate sacrifice so that we may live free. 

This is a wonderful place to live.
