Tomb Reflections

Conducting a wreath laying ceremony with a high school group from Georgia. It's always a solemn occasion for us but as taps was being played, I noticed that both the kids who were representing their class had tears streaming down their cheeks. It was humbling to witness their reaction, especially in 1976 when the military was not at the height of its popularity.
