Veteran's Memorial Park ~ Grand Junction, Colorado . . .
Hundreds of flags were positioned to create a star.
The red, white, and blue from a different perspective.
If you look closely toward the bottom of this sculpture, two bracelets of fallen soldiers have been placed there by loved ones.
The Great Seal of the Southern Ute Indian Tribe.

The rows of markers seem to go on forever. The Grand Mesa which is the largest flat-topped mountain looms in the background.
Mt. Garfield and The Bookcliffs provide the backdrop for these markers.
Old Glory was starched against the Rocky Mountain blue sky on this Memorial Day.
Let us never forget that Freedom isn't Free, and to remember those who have served our country to keep us free not just today, but EVERY day.

You really mess me up when you repost something without warning me, and I go to comment and see that I already have!!! Anyway, beautiful again.
Could you re-post sometime the empty table that you set? I was trying to explain it to someone today, but could not remember all of the elements/symbols. Thanks.
