We spent our morning at the Tracy Cemetery for the annual Memorial Day ceremony. Hundreds of people came out to honor those who gave their lives for our freedom. Apparently, this Memorial Day ceremony drew one of the largest crowds in its 92-year history. Bravo! It was a beautiful ceremony and I knew I wouldn't get through it without my tissue.
Our flag was proudly flying high with the help of the fire department.
Over 1500 American flags were placed at the graves of our veterans. I wish I had a picture of the Little Arlington section.
Mr. MST was one of the seven who gave the three volley rifle salute. It was hard to get a decent picture through the crowd.
Three of our military moms (and one very proud military niece) are holding the wreath we placed as a group in honor of all those who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
I've been a member of Tracy Military Moms since my oldest son, Neil, began serving in the California National Guard over two years ago. We're able to send out hundreds of care packages to our overseas troops with the help of donations from businesses, individuals, service organizations, and fundraisers.
Thank you to all who served so selflessly and to those who continue to serve. Words can't begin to express my gratitude.
