The brave die never, though they sleep in dust: Their courage nerves a thousand living men.” — Minot J. Savage.

Memorial Day, Is an American Holiday, remembering those who died in active service, its roots date back to the Civil War, but Congress made it a Legal Holiday in 1971.

Our Little Town does re-enactments, as well as saying the names of those that were lost in various wars.

I had the pleasure of taking many photographs that day, with my Samsung S 20, proving you do not need to have an expensive, bulky camera, a phone with a decent camera will do the trick.

And getting a picture of them kissing has become a tradition, last year it was my turn to continue with the tradition.

And here’s one of me a photograph of the photographer, I captured her for a change though.

Again these were from last year, but I am grateful for those who made the ultimate sacrifice daily.
