With Memorial Day upon us, I thought I would find my best photo of a flag to commemorate the holiday. I found one close-up photo of a large flag blowing in the wind just outside the Washington Monument. It could have been a post card. But tomorrow is Memorial Day, NOT the 4th of July. On this occasion, no shiny and bright wind-blown flag from grounds of the Washington Monument could compare to this faded and tattered flag that unpretentiously honors the grave of one of our brave veterans who gave his life for our country.
