Honoring All Who Served

Posted by
Elaine Hancock (Olney, United States) on 11 November 2018 in Art & Design.

To all Veterans, thank you for your service. This is a picture of my late father taken 10 years ago at the Vietnam War Memorial. He served in WWII, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

Nice homage! Alas your “Formidable” president D. Trump did not wish to make some as much yesterday, by cancelling in France his visit with the American cemetery, because of the rain .....
