Honoring the fallen

You may remember Sandra Mendez from an earlier post. I had the honor of narrating a wreath laying ceremony at Voinovich Park during Marine Week Cleveland. Each day at 1300 we held a wreath laying ceremony with a Gold Star family member at the traveling replica of the Vietnam War Memorial. SSgt Drake and his crew manned the honor guard all week along with the Cleveland Police Dept.

Semper Fidelis!

  1. This is the second post you’ve written that made me cry! (The first being your post about Sgt. Wrightsman’s death.) Of course, I’m sure the fact that I’m currently reading about the Marine hero’s on Iwo Jima isn’t helping the tear factory!
