A tribute to our service men

I grew up in the service. My father was an Air Force veteran. He served in Viet Nam. I remember it well. I was young and scared. And PROUD.

These images were taken during the Military Appreciation Month ceremony at Evening in Old Seville, Pensacola FL.

Annie I love these photos, especially the first one. I was there that night with guests from RI and discovered that among all the chairs, coolers and picnic basket, I somehow failed to bring my camera. Glad you brought yours.
