Memorial Day Flag Planting

At the Golden Gate National Cemetery, with G;s Girl Scout troop (and a ton of other scouts).  We spotted the graves of two WWII vets with very Japanese sounding names, both of whom died in 1945.  Reminded us of visiting Manzanar (and being at this cemetery near Tanforan) and recognizing that they had probably been in an Internment Camp before serving and dying for our country.  Respect!  For all who have served in our Armed Forces.  And appreciation for all those who made the effort to plant flags on all 145,000 graves in this one cemetery today.
