For our Veterans



My father landed on Omaha Beach a few days after D-Day.  My uncle was shot and wounded in Italy, and was a prisoner of war  for several years.  These men and many others like them, both men and women,  fought to preserve our freedom.  Please take a moment to remember our veterans today.

  8. The flag hangs
    at parade rest
    so the moon
    can review troops
    on this day of days
    when the dead rest,
    our warriors have little.
