This Memorial Day my wife and I will be going to a local national cemetery with my grandmother to observe the Memorial Day ceremony. The ceremony usually has a performance buy one of the Air Force bands, speeches given by veterans and local military officials, and it ends with a flyover. Afterward, we will stop by and visit my grandfather’s grave. He proudly served over 20 years in the USAF.
The following is a video from Tops In Blue, which is an Air Force entertainment group comprised entirely of active duty AF members. As part of a one year special duty assignment, they travel around the world and perform shows to entertain the troops and their families, including performing shows in overseas military communities and in war zones. I hope you enjoy it.
To everyone who has either served, loved someone who has served, or otherwise supported our country in any capacity, I salute you. To those who gave the Ultimate Sacrifice, words cannot express what our country owes you.
