The Memorial Daily Cap(s) (149)

A day of miltiary remembrance (Veteran’s Memorial in Hickory Creek Texas)
Remembering (Veteren’s Memorial in Hickory Creek, Texas)…this is the Memorial I designed for the Town in 2010, and donations constructed it in 2011 – this touches me in more ways than I realize.
But nothing touches the heart and soul like spending a day of military remembrance at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery
Families had the opportunity to sit with their fallen loved ones….
And comrades had the opportunity to reach out to those same families….
Never forget….
A day of pride, thankfulness, and sadness…all in one. I had a lump in my throat all day long.
Waiting for the right time….
To perform, with all our national respect, a 21-canon salute….
It was an honor to watch these proud men at such a close proximity….
At attention, after the canon salute….
Somebody needs to help me with knowing these gentlemen and the symbolism (significance) of their colorful hats…
A lifetime of service….
So many ways one can wear (show) their patriotism….
Families got to spend the day with their loved ones and each other
For peace, at peace…..

  1. The Gentlemen in the hats? The look like Knights of Columbus to me. It’s a fraternal society for Catholic men, originally formed as a vehicle for community service. The Knights offer financial as well as physical assistance to sick, disabled and needy members and their families. Social and intellectual fellowship is promoted among members and their families through educational, charitable, religious, social welfare, war relief and public relief works. (That last bit is directly from their mission statement.)
