Memorial Day 2012 - My Favorite Pictures From Arlington

I went to Arlington National Cemetery for the first time on Memorial Day to celebrate the life of 1LT Kenneth Ballard, with his mother, Karen Meredith, and the other proud members of "Team Ken". It was a moving and inspiring day and I'm posting some pictures that I especially like.

A Reminder...

The sun breaks through on Memorial Day

All white marble... Row upon row...

Upon row...

A single rose...

Section 60, where those we have lost in Iraq and Afghanistan are at rest

Headstone at Site 8006 for 1LT Kenneth Ballard

Karen tells me these stones are called "Mother's Tears"

Karen hugs an arriving member of Team Ken

As only she can, Karen speaks to us of Ken's life and memory

"To Ken!"


A bagpiper plays and walks the rows...

The newest graves really get me

Marines... Always faithful.
