2007: Memorial Day – Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery

On Memorial Day 2007 we headed out to the Fort Rosecrans National Cemetery. My son is fascinated by guns and “sharp and pointy things”, so he had a great time with the reenactors.  It was a very sobering day though, as we wandered through the thousands of graves, all marked with a small American flag.  It made us so thankful for the millions of lives that have been given over the centuries in the fight for freedom.  I am hoping that all Americans will use Memorial Day to remember and be thankful.

The main thing that I want to highlight on this page is the wide copper staples that I used to hold down the pictures on the right hand page.  These are put in place with a special stapler called a fastenater.  The marine uniform is a Jolee’s product.  I selected a blue border for the pictures to compliment the patriotic paper that is on the left hand page.
