    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.
