Final Memorial


Last photos from the Memorial Day Parade in Orange.  The parade culminates at the Orange Cemetery with Veteran's holding a short service of commemoration.  It's always quite moving with taps and a gun salute.  It's remarkable how few people stick around for the service since that's the reason for the day.

  1. Yeah. Sometimes I think Americans feel it is "un-American" to be somber and serious about anything.

  2. So true Dina. Hotdogs and parades seem to be the norm for this holiday.

  3. Don't forget a full Pipe Band playing Amazing Grace too.
