Give Thanks to those who gave us freedom by 

This was taken at the Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Houston, Tx the day before Thanksgiving
My grandfather was visiting some of the graves of his friends who had died after the war (because he didn’t lose a single man on his sub, the Kingfish) and so I had some time to kill so I was looking for photo opps that I wouldn’t get in trouble for. haha.

But as the title says, give thanks to those who gave us freedom.
And give thanks to those who have died in battle and still are, as well as the ones who survive this war.
Even though many have died, that doesn’t mean you should stop telling them thank you
weather you’re for the current war/past wars or against the current/past wars, that wont’ change the fact that people are dying to protect people that they don’t know, so the least we can do is give them thanks. Hell, they deserve it more than anyone.

    You have some great images. I love this, as it adds a personalisation of a place that when I have seen pictures before, is more the big picture, and just a sea of tombstones.

    Very much agree. These soldiers have shown courage that few of us have had the opportunity to equal. Whatever our views about war these people have fought for what they believe in. Humanity will best find peace by respecting the depth of all who live and have lived.
