Veterans Day at LZ Peace Memorial

Don Allen, USMC, Taps

Veterans Day was a beautiful day indeed. The grey skies turned to rain. The rain turned to sleet. The sleet turned to snow. American flags were retired and turned to red embers and buried near LZ Glory. Shown above: Don Allen, USMC and Vietnam veteran sounds Taps.

The clicking noises you hear on the videos are from sleet hitting my Osco umbrella. Yes, real men carry umbrellas but the camera still got wet and blurry.

And they all sang. . . .
