The Wall Traveling Memorial

My coworker Heather told me about this Vietnam Wall Traveling Memorial they were having in a park here in Vernal. Obviously since James and I are both really interested in history, patriotism, and showing respect and gratitude for our troops we had to take the family and see it. Can I just tell you that it was awesome. I have both relatives and friends who are either serving or have served our country. My guess is that just about everyone here knows someone who is or has and even if in the off chance you don't you wouldn't have been able to go to this memorial and not feel anything. The day we went was the day they had the bikers ride by on their harleys as a show of respect it was awesome!!!!! You can think all you want about bikers but you know what they love this country!! We had a nice chat with a biker when we were in line getting the kids some P.O.W. M.I.A. dog tags to remember the day by. He was super sincere and friendly. He told us about some of the time he spent serving this great country. So I just want to say thank you to all those who are serving, have served, and their friends and family. Also, a special prayer and thank you to those who died, or those who lost love ones fighting for this country. Thank you and God Bless!!!

James was really touched by it.

Probably my favorite picture of the bike line....the bikes were super cool.

They had small memorials for 9-1-1 and a few of the other wars.

I know these are the same but I was trying to experiment a little with my film camera this day too.

What is the cost of Freedom? Lives.....lots of them. I know that times are bad right now but at least support the many men and women who are trying and have tried to make this the greatest country in the world. GO TROOPS!!!
