Memorial Day – New Castle Cemetery

IMG_2028

Memorial Day – a day to honor those who have given their lives that we can enjoy the freedoms they fought so very hard for.  Ritchey and I visited the small town of New Castle, Henry County, Kentucky, on Saturday, and were so impressed that for each soldier an American flag was flying beside his grave.  I share with you today a few of these photos.  Let’s salute these soldiers, and all who have fought for our country – some giving the supreme sacrifice.
