Mirror Reflection of Mourning Soldier With USA Flag (Memorial Day 2012)

A mourning soldier reflected through a mirror of the U.S. Flag!

Memorial Day 2012 Photos will continue to fill us with remembrance of the one day all Americans take-off to honor the fallen and those soldiers who have served the USA with poise and bravery. The United States forever will be indebted to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, and we bow our heads to honor them.

Below are many photos taken from many different websites and blogs (copyrights respective of photo owners) conveying what Memorial Day means to Americans and showing in bold photography the beauty in honoring those who have served this great nation. God bless you and all that you do, and fall to our knees to pray for the families who continue to be effected day-in an day-out by the sacrifices of their loved ones.

    Not that I mind, but how did you find my blog? I don’t get a lot of views, so my pictures showing up elsewhere are rare indeed.

      It was from the Memorial Day 2012 page on, I have it linked in my Photos of the Day – Memorial Day article at the bottom. I was looking for cool photos to use so I just kept scrolling and found your blog in the list. Some of them I checked cause they had intriguing text, others cause of the photos. I thought your kid was adorable naturally so he made a good pic. :) Let me know if you want me to edit the caption to point to your blog or add any info or whatnot.
