Today the biggest Memorial Day tribute in the United States took place at Folsom Field in Boulder, Colorado.
It’s an annual event that takes place at noon every Memorial Day at the conclusion of the BolderBOULDER.
Unfortunately, in the last 5 months since pot became legal in Colorado, most of the focus in Colorado and the nation has been on that one subject.
Today, however, the focus was on veterans who have so bravely served and are still serving in our Armed Forces.
Two WWII veterans were especially honored today in Boulder, both having fought in the horrendous battle of Iwo Jima. One of them, Jack Thurman, is a family friend.
Here are some pictures of Jack that I took as we watched the whole event on TV.
On Iwo Jima…
After the long, bloody battle, Jack is on far left lifting his helmet high after the raising of the American flag on Iwo Jima!
Below is Jack today – a true hero and a good man!
Thank you, Jack, and thank you to all our veterans!
