This year was the first time we have attended a memorial event here in Weirton. There's a special they built just for the troops. Names of those who are drafted in the military in West Virginia (not sure if it's for the whole state or just for the city though) are listed on the wall.
Most of the attendees are old people. Hubby is sad to see that most of the young ones doesn't even care of what is going on with the troops.
The ones in red shirts at the left corner are special children who played the instruments. There were boy scouts there too who were handing out free water.
Hubby and I wants to instill in our Burritos young minds that it is important to learn about the men and women in uniform.
