While I was covering members of the Oregon National Guard at the Memorial Day observances at Tom McCall Waterfront Park in downtown Portland yesterday, Spc. Julie Trotter, of the 2-218 Field Artillery, was at Willamette National Cemetery, convering events there.
Laid out below their feet were the true heroes, and why the Soldiers and Airmen of the Oregon National Guard do what they do on a daily basis, and really, what Memorial Day is all about.
I hope you enjoy the pictures. ;)
Thanks to Julie for some great shots!
