Memorial Day

From the plaque "To Honor U.S. Servicemen and Women Held Prisoner by Terrorists", in memory of Colonel William Richard Higgins, USMC:

He died far away,
Before his time,
But as a soldier and for his country.

I posted this piece about Quantico National Cemetary last Memorial Day.

Update: Nic has posted some wonderful pictures of the various memorials around Washington D.C.

I am not the only one who has not forgotten him. I am glad.

I heard his wife speak once. I will never forget her saying she knew when she saw the photo that it was him, for you know your spouse, all of them, and she knew his feet.

I think of him often. Some things are burned in my brain forever and his death is one of them.
