Here is one from a few years ago...if you find yourself in the Washington DC area, it is worthwhile to spend a few hours here. God Bless America!

Hi all,
Thanks for taking time to comment. Much appreciated.

And yes, Jelpee,

Washington DC is on my short list of places I need to visit before I'm too old.

#1 & #2 are from the National D-Day Memorial in Bedford, VA.
#3 is the Freedom Wall in the National World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. Each star represents 100 Americans that died in WWII.
#4 is also from the World War II Memorial.

Hi TCav,

You're welcome and thnx for participating.

Your image of the stars on the wall gives pause for thought as to the huge sacrifice in terms of brave men and women who gave their lives for our freedom.

These are my photos from 2005 when i was a senior in highschool. So the professional level is lacking but these always bring back memories for me.
