SkyWatch Friday # 45

This is the World War II Memorial in Bedford. Virginia.
Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Ivar, Wren, Fishing Guy and Louise for bringing SkyWatch to us weekly. If you would like to post your own photos or want to look at other people's skies all over the world, please visit their site by clicking on the button below.

These photos are from my archives as we visited the memorial several years ago. It seemed appropriate with Memorial Day approaching, to post them today while remembering my own family's Veterans, and remembering Veterans everywhere.
