Veterans Day

I thought this shot might be appropriate for Veterans Day this year.  This is the eternal flame that stands in front of the Tomb Of the Unknown Revolutionary Soldier in Washington Square Park in Philadelphia Pennsylvania.  The park is located just behind Independence Hall.  The tomb has a statue of George Washington and this flame.  Basically there are hundreds of unknown dead from the Revolutionary War buried there.  Very interesting place and a place I didn't even know existed until we visited Independence Hall.  If you ever get there, try to make a stop and check it out.

And, with Veterans Day, take a moment to reflect on the sacrifices our veterans make for our freedom, especially nowadays because the wars we are engaged in are the longest lasting ones the US has ever been in.  That has to take a toll on our vets and their families  If you see a veteran, say thanks for a job well done.  Plus, it doesn't have to be on Veterans Day, you can thank them anytime and I think they will appreciate it!

Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoy the photo!
