Memorial Day aboard Intrepid

The Memorial Day Ceremony was held this year on the Pier rather than on the Flight Deck, since the Flight Deck is being prepared for the arrival of the Space Shuttle Enterprise.  This year was another hot, sunny one with hundreds of military and families and supporters present.

A new technique for me .. A panorama of the 100' flag unfurled on the Pier, held up by currently enlisted and veteran members of the Armed Forces.
My husband, Eric, (blue cap) took his place at the perimeter as a 20-year veteran of the Air Force.
