Memorial Day 2013

Today mom and I attended both Memorial Day ceremonies held in Atascadero, first, the original and now earlier and smaller one at Pine Mountain Cemetery and then the newer and later and larger one at the Faces of Freedom Veteran's Memorial also in Atascadero. Both ceremonies were very touching and it felt rewarding and an honor to be in attendance of both of them.
Here are some scenes from them I captured:
This earlier and smaller ceremony held at Pine Mountain Cemetery used to be the primary and only such ceremony here.
Here at the Faces of Freedom Veterans Memorial a much larger crowd gathered to honor our nation's departed warriors.
Pastor Key leading an invocative prayer to kick things off.
