I had all intentions of already doing this article for Memorial Day, but I believe things never happen in God’s world by mistake.

I never dreamed of ever being able to visit Washington D.C., BUT I am here. As we drove down the street toward the Washington Memorial

it was all I could do not to burst into tears. Then on a wrong turn we ended up across a bridge and on the way back across, I turned and there was  the dome of the Capitol Building,

and at that moment I realized just how much all those who serve/served have sacrificed for us all to be able to live in the USA.

My dad served in the Navy on the U.S.S Maury DD401 during WWII and my husband served during Vietnam and retired from the Army.

Thank you to all who have served to protect our freedoms  that we have today.

  1. Renee-funny! I made that same wrong turn when I was visiting DC about 20 years ago-three times!-and kept going back and forth over that bridge. Finally, the fourth time I got it right. Wonder how many other visitors that has happened to.

  2. One of the best pictures of the monument I have seen!

    • Thank you Trevor…I am so far behind on my blog due to being so far north for a few months with no internet connection. We are headed farther south so in hopes I will be able to get caught up with this blog and start my new one with photo’s of our trip up the east coast.
