Oddly, (America’s) Memorial weekend 2013 was the most apropos celebration I’ve ever had for this somber holiday and it was spent in France. I traveled to Normandy and Brittany to attend the ceremony at the American Cemetery which a family member was the the MC. It was really nice seeing so many American flags, American grass and hearing our national anthem. From the speeches that were made the main theme was the true friendship that America and France have.
Thank you to all of the men and women out there protecting America!!
