My Memorial Day

I spent it in Peckville, where there was a parade and observance beginning at 8:30 AM.

The photo above was taken on Keystone Avenue.  It stopped at the SGT Jan Argonish memorial.  He was killed in Afghanistan in 2007.

It's what the day is all about-- remembering those who didn't make it home.  Over the years, the day has morphed into a second Veterans Day.  It bothers some.  Not me.  Any chance to say "thank you" to those who serve is a good one.

Peckville was not alone.  A lot of small towns and large cities here in our area marked Memorial Day.  It's part of what makes our area special, and I was happy to bring part of it into your homes yesterday.
