The Obama White House couldn’t find time to make its own contribution to the festivities, but Armed Forces Day was celebrated in a big way in Washington Saturday with Honor Flights bringing America’s veterans in from all over the country so they could enjoy the day’s activities and visit the memorials of a grateful country to their sacrifices for freedom.
Here’s a photo tweeted of Honor Flight Mike, out of Milwaukee — big anticipatory smiles.
Armed Forces Day not only honors those who are currently serving in uniform, but also veterans and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. All of America’s fallen are represented by a single monument — a tomb. A somber, respectful ceremony was held there.
