Wordless Wednesday: Remembered

Veteran

This is one of the metal tags on a flag at a veteran's grave marker in Roxbury, Connecticut. There were different tags for the Revolutionary, Civil and First World wars. (There is a different one in the post below.)

  17. It is very detailed, including the wear on the tag. This must have been a very interesting place to visit, both visually and spiritually.

    I am wondering from which war this is - I am guessing WWI, but I can't be sure.

  18. The marker shows war and tear just like their service for our country did. I am glad we honor our vets who have died in this way.

  21. I love little medallions or symbols on graves. Here in OK in the older cemetaries there are some "CSA" designations from the Civil War (or as I heard one guy in Mississippi put it, "the war of northern agression."

    In Utah and Southern Idaho you see little pushcarts on the graves of Mormon pioneers.

    Thanks

  23. Beautiful close-up shot of this weathered marker. And I love your previous post of cemetary pictures. My sister and I love strolling through cemetaries, looking at all the names on the headstones - especially older ones.

  26. It looks like a US Marshall? The strange thing is, if I am right, I don't know how I know that or why.

    Have a wonderful day.

  27. I hope you're hanging on to some of these for Memorial Day. They'd be great!

  29. What a lovely way to remember veterans! I remember visiting my father's grave soon after he died and seeing that someone had put a flag there(he was a veteran): I was touched and so, so proud.
    Great choice, Sandy!
