Fighters just flew overhead in Missing Man Formation- Every known veterans grave has been graced with a flag, in cemeteries and fields where battles were fought-

I don't know that war in itself is honorable- But do know that the women and men that gave their lives fighting merit remembrance, but even more so, love-

And at the American War Cemetery near me, rosecarmel.

On Memorial Day, Rolling Thunder declared it was their last ride, mainly due to financial concerns but I believe there were other issues too.
Some of the bikers, Viet-Nam vets themselves, are getting too old and infurm to make long trips from southern states.
That's such a shame.
