Touching Memorial Day Tributes

Over the past few weeks I’ve noticed some very touching Memorial Day tributes to American War Veterans. Here’s one that I’ve been drivng past on my way to work. On Friday, I stoped in to get a closer look and take a few pictures. The memorial is called Field of Flags and it was put up by members of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Westborough, MA. It’s overwhelmingly sad to stand among these flags and realize that every one of the 3729 (as of May 33) represents a dead soldier and a living group of family and friends going through the pain of loss. Another sobering thougt is that the number is increasing all the time. Here’s a link to the latest Department of Defense Casulity Fact Sheet.

While we’re on the subject, here is a touching tribute to the troops with a special song by country singer Tim McGraw.
