Veteran's Day 11-11-11

Posted by
Bill Brown (California, United States) on 11 November 2011 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

--- National WWII Memorial, Washington, D.C. ---
The memorial honors the 16 million who served in the armed forces of the U.S. during World War II, the more than 400,000 who died, and the millions who supported the war effort from home. It is the first national memorial dedicated to all who served during World War II. I salute all who served before and after ---- Thanks for your service!
