Boots on the Ground

Memorial Day will be celebrated on Monday and for the second year Operation Stand Down RI has created a stunning tribute to the nearly 7,000 Service Members killed since September 11th. Boots on the Ground is a stark reminder that our freedom has a cost. Today I took time out to photograph this spectacle. I was deeply moved while observing Veterans from WWII, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan moving among the rows of Boots and Flags in silent respect. These same Veterans spent countless hours creating this tribute and keeping all the American Flags upright. Every American should take the time to reflect on what Memorial Day really means. Anyone in the Providence
area should visit this creation at the Temple of Music in Roger Williams Park
