Memorial Day

The FLGs went to the Falls Church memorial parade. However, FLG's thoughts turned to Hawaii for some reason:
The first photo is of the USS Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor. The second is from the National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, more commonly referred to as the Punchbowl.  Perhaps it is juxtaposition of the solemnity with the surrounding beauty, but whatever the reason both places deeply move FLG whenever he visits them, maybe even more so than Arlington Cemetery.
