More Memorial Day Pictures

I have a few more pictures of the D-Day Memorial and then some shots of the Blue Ridge Parkway sights. We took the Parkway for part of our journey back on Monday. It’s really beautiful, even in the summer.


This gentleman was in his dress blues. You can’t tell much from this, but I’d have to say he was well into his 60’s, if not older. Just beautiful!

These are Junior ROTC from a local high school. They are dressed in period uniforms.


At the Memorial, they dedicated a full bronze statue of Eisenhower. They also have a large plaque with his speech from before the invasion, but I didn’t take a picture of that (too big).

These are all from various overlooks on the Blue Ridge Parkway.
