Memorial Day Ceremony & Job's Daughters

National Memorial Cemetery Memorial Day Flag Decoration
It is the first weekend of summer break for my eldest daughter. Two more have their last day of school this coming Wednesday. So, what's the best way to start a summer break?

Getting up at 5 A.M. on a Saturday.  ;-)

My oldest three daughters participate in a young women's group called Job's Daughters. The "Jobies" gathered at the National Memorial Cemetery in Cave Creek, Arizona at 7 A.M. this morning for a special flag ceremony. It was about a 50 minute drive for the eight of us but well worth the trip.

Several attendants were on site handing out bundles of American flags. Each grave site was adorned with one flag and all 10,000 plots were decorated. We watched as our girls walked up and down the rows, helping each other to place the flags.

There was such a tremendous turn out of volunteers, the entire cemetery was decorated in under 40 minutes! I was amazed and humbled. This was our first year to participate and I'm sure it won't be the last.

Thank you to all the men and women who served this country.

Salute!
