Default Picture of the year, "Standing Guard"

I was sent this yesterday:

This one may give you goose bumps - beautiful. Pic taken at the National Cemetery in Minneapolis , MN on a June morning -
as it appeared in the Minneapolis Star/Tribune. Talk about a picture being worth a thousand words! It says everything .
This could become an official Memorial Day, 4th of July and/or Veterans Day Picture of the Year - "Standing Guard"

That is amazing! You wanna talk about goosebump endusing!

*Edit*

Dont think it was taken in June though...that is, unless trees in Minnesota dont start budding until July.
