Today we visited the cemetery where my father is interred.
On Memorial Day weekend thousands of American flags decorate every grave.
It is a beautiful and moving sight.
Everywhere, on every hill, at every grave site, American flags are gently waving in the breeze.
The most recent information I found as to how many flags fill the
Brigadier General William C. Doyle Veterans
was from 2010
Less than a year before he passed away, my dad was honored along with other township veterans at a Veteran's Day Ceremony
John's dad was in the China Burma India Theater during his service in World War II.
My mother's father served in World War I
John's great-grandfather served in the Civil War and was wounded in the Second Battle of Bull Run. He lost his life and is buried in the Nashville National Cemetery in Tennessee.
I also have a direct ancestor from York County, Pennsylvania that fought as a Minuteman during the American Revolution
