Category Archives: Memorial Day
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.
