||2010 Oregon's Field of Honor
The MOST AMAZING THING happened the other day!
As Dave drove over this hill, we were stunned to notice that as far as the eye could see there were American Flags flying. Later we discovered there were 1000 of them to be exact.
This was something that strikes reverance in absolutely each of us American's and most particularly all veterans. But even if you haven't fought in a foreign war, when you stand there and listen, you'd swear you can hear the national anthem playing somewhere.
Dave and another veteran spoke of the times during the Vietnam war, and how our country is forever changed because of the 33k young men who never came back, then they both got a bit teary eyed and hugged. It made me cry just watching them connect over something that happened soooooooooooooo long ago, but comes back fresh in their minds as they stand looking at this field of flags.
By the way, these flags have names on them representing the young soldiers who have not come back from our most recent battles. What a shame........
