Saying Goodbye

For those who have served - 
 Thank You!
And for those who continue to serve -  
Thank You!
My Grandpa was a vet and was honored with a military funeral, never realized that my dad followed so closely in his footsteps.
I was fine up until the trumpet wailed it's sad goodbye while 2 marines folded up the American flag and presented it to my dad's wife.
It was the 21 gun salute that finalized it for me and I was in tears.
Memorial Weekend will never mean the same to me again, it'll mean more
And my dad will be remembered..........

I didn't know he was a veteran too.

Beautiful entry, my dear friend.
