Memorial Day at South Florida National Cemetery
Several members of South Florida 912 joined hundreds of others commemorating Memorial Day at the South Florida National Cemetery in Lake Worth. The program was well run – with frequent VA shuttles from the Target parking lot and cold bottles of water and programs handed to all arriving by Boy Scouts and other organizations. Speakers, band performances, presentation of colors, invocations all made for a memorable event. A good summary of the respectful ceremony at this beautiful cemetery can be found here.
For me – the most touching act was by our own 912er – Jeannie Barnett. She saw that an elderly veteran was uncomfortable in the sun, so she went over to him and his wife and held an umbrella to shade them from the sun. Well done, Jeannie!
