Was a nice ceremony. Liked how they put people in the shade this year. The Legion Riders looked great, the speaker was moving and the singers were awesome. The guy who sang the National Anthem did it right without screwing it up the was so many people do, and the lady who sang God Bless The USA was positively AWESOME! Don't know who she is, but damn!!!!!

I agree! It was very nice. It's sad that we're losing so many of our veterans. It won't be long before all our WW2 soldiers are gone. It seems like the list that's read gets longer and longer. I cry every year. 2 years ago, my grandfather's name was read. I still miss him so much. I am proud to be his granddaughter. I don't know Bill Sherfesse, the man who sang the National Anthem, but he DID do a excellent job! It was refreshing to hear The Star Spangled Banner sung the way it is SUPPOSED to be sung!!!! We need many MORE like him!!!! While I don't know Mary Catherine personally, I do know of her. I have a friend who knows her really well. She's the lady they call Nanny that you see driving that Ford van that travels with the Legion Riders. The one with the magnets on it. My friend says she's passionate about making sure all veterans, living or gone, are honored, respected and taken care of, as are her Legion Rider friends. I sure hope we have them around for a long time.
