One of many wreaths dedicated to those killed in action and those currently serving in the military.
Early this morning I drove to Austin to participate in the annual Memorial Day events - flag rising at the court house, the Memorial Day parade, the dedications of wreaths at the Oakwood Cemetery, and the decorating with flowers the graves of my mother and father. I was pleased this year to hear the local organizations paying homage to past and present veterans. Those in Iraq and Afghanistan were included in the dedications and prayers. Following the dedications ceremony, I was interviewed by a nearby TV station. You can watch it here: click on Memorial Day in Austin.
