A Memorable Memorial Day [Reprinted]

[Reprinted from 2012]

Last year, my mother and I volunteered to help place flags at Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery the Friday before Memorial Day. It was my second outing, and equally as moving as the first. Watching the literal swarm of flag-carrying volunteers move as a human wave across the grounds is breathtaking.

Thank you to all who have served.
