Thank you!



Washington's Headquarters at Valley Forge


This photo was taken years ago in Washington, D.C.. This statue is part of the Vietnam War Memorial. The soldier on the left, with the hat and holding the rifle, was a classmate of mine from high school. He modeled for the artist years after his safe return from duty in Vietnam. 

To my friend, who has since passed away, and all those who served and did not return home...thank you.

Enjoy the day,
Robyn

  7. Good morning Robyn - oh what wonderful photos.
    For as many times as we have driven right through Valley Forge we have yet to visit any of the exhibits. How beautiful!
    Blessings
