Thank you so much for helping us celebrate America and our vets by sending us photos of your family or community celebrating Memorial Day weekend. We've posted below a handful of the many great photos sent to us.
John B went up a mountain to show his support: "Mount POW/MIA is a mountain that was dedicated in November of 1999 to any military personnel that have ever been determined as a Prisoner of War or been Missing In Action. This mountain can easily be seen from the Matanuska-Susitna Veterans Memorial...At the summit there is a POW/MIA flag, register, and plaque dedicated to James Wesley Widdis, Jr. Northwest of the summit, about 100 feet, if there is little or no snow, is a picnic table for picnicking pleasure."
Andrew S: "My dog Guinness at Williamsburg, VA. He is ready to fight for our freedom."
Bob K: "This pictures is from our Memorial Day services at the town park in Sardinia, NY."

Picture of Don B's son Jeremy, who is currently serving in Iraq. Don says of this photo: “Freedom: Brought to you Courtesy of Brave Americans, Past, Present and Future, … GOD Willing.”
Elisha C used Memorial Day weekend to reflect on her service to our country: "My name is Elisha and I currently live in Omaha, NE. The photo I am sending is one I took today of my Air Force uniform hanging on the back of a chair, with a picture of an eagle with a flag hanging on the wall in the background. I have been in the military for almost six years now, and in just a month, I will be separated and no longer wearing this uniform. I am proud to have called myself an Airman in the USAF and am thankful for those who served before me, with me, and those who will serve after me."

Karen A: "Snapshot of my littlest ones having fun with sparklers in their grandparents' garden this Memorial Day. My son has been especially interested in the flag after we attended a minor league ball game this past week. Taking his ball cap off, watching the flag, and hearing the words to the Star-Spangled Banner opened the door to a great discussion about how our country remains free today."
Kathleen O: "These photos were taken in Tradition, St. Lucie County, Florida. The display is called "Take Time to Honor". Volunteers put up Crosses and Stars of David for every man and woman who gave their lives in service to the United States of America so that we would remain free."
Lori H: "My daugther after greeting the soldiers at DFW airport."
Monica C: "This is how our son Jaime has chosen to serve Memorial Day…….fighting for our freedom in Afghanistan. So very proud of him!"
Robert S: "From New Orleans at the NASA base. Working hard on this Memorial Day! Proud to be an American."
Yvonne J: "Memorial Day Service, Quantico National Cemetery, Quantico, Virginia."
