Andy's Angles: Boots

I'll give the organizers of the annual SGT Jan Argonish Memorial Ride credit for trying to do something a little different every year.  It takes it from a three hour event on a Sunday afternoon to a weekend filled with tributes and memories.

This year, it was this-- a memorial boot garden.  The boots came from veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan.  The names on the boots represent men who served in Korea, and never made it home.

And, there was more-- a life sized tribute to those who served in Korea, called the forgotten war.

Admittedly, it's tough to be objective here.  My dad is a Korean War veteran and I know the Argonish family.  Even without the connections, it was a powerful weekend.
