This post has nothing to do with gardening or woodworking, and everything to do with living in Winterset. It’s Memorial Day, and this awesome little town does not disappoint. Admittedly I didn’t participate in many of the John Wayne Days activities, but this morning I trekked over to the cemetery for the Veterans Memorial service. I’m not much of a photographer so the photos don’t do this justice, but it was an awesome site. 576 flags lined the roads through the cemetery honoring Veterans from Winterset. There was a brief parade led by the high school marching band, followed by a service of honor and remembrance. The Color Guard was present, there was a fly over, and following the service they awarded 13 Quilts of Valor. I may or may not have teared up a bit. Thanks to all for your service and sacrifices, and to the organizers of this humbling event.
