Willow Wednesday

In honor of the upcoming Memorial Day, we wanted to pay tribute to all of the veterans and people who have served and protected our country.
This statue is honoring the Navajo Code Talkers.


This is the anchor from the USS Arizona that was sunk during Pearl Harbor.
While we often think of military service during Memorial Day, let's not forget about the police officers that give their lives to protect us - including our 4-legged K9 friends.

I hope this is big enough that you can read this. If the text in the picture is too small for you to see, you can read the poem online here.
