A gathering of American Heroes. Gone but not forgotten during this Holiday season.
For more interpretations of gathering.
Lovely sentiment for the season.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Never more true than with this photo. Very powerful and so appropriate during this season.
I’m always glad to remember this gathering and to be thankful for those gathered here and other places like it.
This is an excellent entry. Thank you.
You click on the prompt thinking you’ll see something similar to all others just interpreted differently and then the picture loads and you go “Oh!”!
Very thoughtful take on the prompt. Excellent!
Thank you. After traveling to visit my uncle’s grave this year and seeing all those crosses, it was what came to mind and heart when I saw the prompt.

Absolutely. So many things I do over the season remind me of the past – and how dad (a WWII D-Day Purple Heart veteran) was there to enjoy them with me. Your poignant photo also reminds me that we are free to celebrate the way we do now because of the past sacrifice of so many. The only way we can say “thank you” today is to remember them the way you do!
Sincere thanks to your Dad for his service and your family for understanding. I hope you enjoy many warm family memories as you enjoy this Christmas season with your lovely family.
Judy, very moving and a thoughtful reminder. Last Saturday was the day Wreaths Across America placed wreaths at Arlington and military cemeteries across our nation. I participate locally in what is an emotional and loving tribute to our servicemen and women. Stunning photos at wreathsacrossamerica.org. Merry Christmas from our home to yours.
That had an influence on my choice because I had been seeing the coverage all week. I applaud your community involvement in recognizing the ultimate sacrifice these brave men and women have made along with their families. A sincere Merry Christmas to you and yours. It’s been a new found pleasure chatting with you this year and I look forward to more conversations in 2016. 🙂
Thank you, Judy. The feeling is mutual !
Beautiful ! Scott and a few buddies are going to put a wreath on a war hero’s grave on Christmas Eve morning ( little Brent’s namesake )
That is a really nice gesture, and that particular hero will be part of your family forever and that is a really good thing. 🙂
That is a beautiful gathering.
Especially this time of year, I think of how all the families of those lost in various wars are affected by their personal losses. I know it’s not cute kittens and puppies like most of the other posts, but a gathering of war heroes is what came to mind this year. 🙂
A peaceful gathering 😀
