The photo was taken somewhere in Germany in the later part of World War II. My dad was proud to have served his country, to have defended the flag and freedom.
I've shared the photo of this quilt block before, too. It's one of several that will one day make up a quilt in memory of my dad's service in the U.S. Army, WWII.
If you want to learn more about how Memorial Day began, I found this interesting link...... Memorial*Day*History. Wishing you a very lovely Sunday and a day of remembrance on Monday, Memorial Day.........
