Today is November 11th, Veteran’s Day in the USA. The 52Snapshots of Life Photo Challenge word of the week is “Veteran”. My family has no veterans, nor any military ties or involvement, so this was a tough challenge. Mom decided we should head to Fort Snelling National Cemetery for our photo. I did my best to look proud and patriotic.
Fort Snelling Cemetery was first established in 1870. The cemetery is 436.3 acres, and as of 2014 had 208,000 interments. There are so many white tombstones marking fallen military or veterans who have passed, and they always celebrate days like Veteran’s Day in a big way. Thank you to all the veterans who have helped make this country the great country it is today. I am waving a flag for you.
