|There were many veterans present for the Memorial Day ceremony at the Legion Post, but this old gentleman in his original uniform really caught my eye. Behind him is a small part of the crowd.|
|My husband is in the Honor Guard, and I always try to get at least one sketch of the guys as they stand at parade rest.|
It was a touching ceremony, but my favorite part was afterward, when I got to talk to some of the old vets...the sailor among them who saw four tours of duty on as many destroyers.
The men were so willing to share their stories--I wish I had had all day to just sit and listen.
