Veterans, We Salute You

Filed under: Cemeteries — lessie @ 10:46 pm

Veteran’s Day. Over the summer, the office I work in has young people come and intern — kind of a try-it-and-see-if-you-like-it thing. The tallish, blondeish, thinning-hair fella down the hall from me was a veteran. He introduced himself to me with a quiet smile and firm handshake. He got married at the end of the summer. He seemed too young to be a veteran. And yet…I imagine many of the folks he served with were younger. I wish I had thought to use the photo of Ms. Gibson (below) for this day — her son is in Afghanistan — but, perhaps the above shot is good as well. He was only 22 when Robert Gilbert Campbell gave his life for our country. His memorial is at Whitefield Baptist Church.

  1. Very nice shot for Veteran’s Day. I regret that I was unable to get one this year. My father was wounded in France during that time, but luckily he was able to come home.
