WOW, this is a powerful photo. I assume she is receiving the flag because of the loss of a loved one in the service of our country? An important reminder to us all, thank you for posting it. Thanks to all the veterans for their service and sacrifice!

As they say, "One picture is worth a thousand words."

I wonder how many of this kind of photograph have been taken over the years. Too many.

Marcia, I'm so sorry your family was touched directly with a loss.
This celebration was certainly highly moving. Very sad for your mother.
You asked if our family lose someone, my great grandfathers partipated to WWI, they came back alive but very shocked about what they've seen.
Grandfathers were at WW2, and my father had not the perfect age to participate to the following colonial ones (Indochine or Algerie), my father in law was in Algerie during 2 years of his youth !
None of them were engaged voluntarily, they just have been called because of their age.

Sometimes saying nothing says everything..

thought provoking..We all have our veteran stories that inspire, and make us grateful for those who serve..

Great pic.

Thank you ever so much for sharing it... A moving picture... and a perfect sentiment. We owe so much to those few who paid for so many.
