Because it’s Memorial Day Weekend and we were just in Washington D.C. I wanted to share some of the great War Memorials we visited. On Monday I have a post about Arlington National Cemetery and today I’m sharing photos from the Korean War Memorial during the day and at night. The interesting thing we learned from our Trolley Tour Guide is that Korean American visitors and visitors from Korea leave wreaths everyday at the Memorial.
When the Warrior Returns
When the warrior returns, from the battle afar,
To the home and the country he nobly defended,
O! Warm be the welcome to gladden his ear,
And loud be the joy that his perils are ended:
In the full tide of song let his fame roll along,
To the feast-flowing board let us gratefully throng,
Where, mixed with the olive, the laurel shall wave,
And form a bright wreath for the brows of the brave.
~ Francis Scott Key
Photobucket replaced all my photos with blurred out versions and they are holding my photos hostage until I pay them lots of money. I’m slowly going through all my posts and trying to clean them up and replacing some photos. Such a bother.
