Lest We Forget…
In deep abiding gratefulness for the men and women who died to secure our freedom, we honor them this Memorial Day.
Love y’all, Camellia

What a lovely idea. My only close relative who died in battle was my uncle Jack Matson. He died in the Pacific theater, and is buried in Manila, the Philippines.
I like your photo, too. I’m curious: what is the other flag that you have displayed?

Thank you, the other flag is the state flag of Alabama, my home state. So thankful for your uncle’s service.
I love Memorial Day. Interesting thing is last week, I was searching for an honoring post that gave the fallen soldiers of this great nation a great heartfelt sincere appreciation for their advancement of our freedom and liberty. I didn’t find a post last week, but thankfully I found one today. Your post has been very rewarding!
Thank you! My daughter is a teacher and a dedicated Christian- I am impressed with any teacher who also blogs about Christianity.
