Services at the Capay Cemetery

I am spending Memorial Day at home today, the family is at the ranch, so I went out to the Capay Cemetery to attend the Memorial Day ceremony. It was a small service, hosted by our local VFW. I would guess the crowd at 40-50 total, many of them veterans, a few are veterans of WWII. One is my friend Roy who I have come to know through my Bible study. These were the older guys with the blurry tattoos and crew cuts of my youth, now they move slowly, many of them barely able to get around, but they make it a point to show up for Memorial Day.

I have such deep appreciation for these, and for all men who have served our nation in battle.
We will never forget the fallen.

Here is my video tribute.
