Memorial Day USA which we honor all our war dead or missing in action. I spent yesterday covering 200 miles laying Red..White..Blue mums of the graves of all war dead from my home county. I don't wish to get votes on this non processed pic.. just a reminder to all to honor those that sacrificed for your freedom no matter what nationality you are. John Paul Dewberry.. ball turret gunner B-17 bomber 8th Air Force. Lost at sea with the entire crew as flak over target heavily damaged their aircraft and it went down in the Sea. It was attempting to return to base in England after a bomb load supporting the Allied ground invasion of Normandy in an attempt to liberate Europe of Axis powers. All combat veterans gave some.. SOME GAVE ALL.. May God bless..!!

I'm Italian, so all my respect for this post. I was not born yet, but I can say that here in Italy, every country has a monument honoring the dead who gave their lives for their country.

And as it should be Leonardo.. as it should be. This post is actually a tribute to all who have paid the ultimate price to perserve freedom in their country regardless of which one it is. And there remembrance should be an everyday thought and not isolate
