My wife’s grandfather recently passed. He was a World War 2 veteran, and is interred at the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery. The full service included the gun salute and the flag folding ceremony. It seems appropriate that this weekend I started work on a flag display case. I have some really old walnut that I’ve had stored for about 15 years, which would be perfect for this project.

Have a safe holiday weekend, and honor those that have served this great country!

Thanks, and the same to you.

It’s actually a really beautiful place, at least the area by the trees… it’s almost like a forest preserve.
