The United States celebrates Memorial Day on the last Monday of May, a day set aside to remember people who died while serving in the armed forces, although many families use it to remember other deceased loved ones also. Memorial Day 2014 was special and unique for me and my husband.
We had planned a trip to New Mexico, not realizing we would be there on Memorial Day. I was going to attend a medical conference and we also wanted to visit the Vietnam Veterans Memorial at Angel Fire.
Since my husband is a Vietnam Veteran, I had ordered a brick engraved with his name to be laid on the walkway there. We wanted to see it, and decided to go on Memorial Day, to also join the special remembrance service they have on that day.
Here, in pictures, is what we experienced that day . It was a chilly overcast day, but the rain held off until the ceremony ended.
