Yesterday Sean and I took a trip to the war memorial outside of Florence. Since it was Veteran's Day, a couple of junior ROTC groups from Italy did a ceremony. I have to admit I choked up a bit during a few of the songs. The cemetery was very moving and just incredible in my opinion. It's one of the smaller cemeteries holding soldiers from WWII, but that doesn't make it any less moving.
This is the group from Naples High School
One of three wreaths they placed on the memorial.
More flowers left at the memorial.
Headstone marking the grave of an unknown soldier
Row of crosses. Probably my favorite shot of the day.
Sean and I are off to Slovenia today so I'm not sure if I'll be around much until Monday. We have wireless in our room (supposedly) but we shall see if we even take the laptop.
Have a good (early) weekend!
