64. Theme 241 ~Remembrance~

I took this at a Memorial Day Ceremony last week.  This gentleman served in WWII in both the Army & Navy.  While in the Navy, he served in Iwo Jima and Okinawa. He was discharged and enlisted in the Army where he served in Japan and Korea……a real hero in my estimation.  (I put him in a new background because the original was very distracting.)
