Honoring fallen heros

Yesterday, I had stopped out at our State Veterans Cemetery near Camp Ripley, to pay a visit to my fallen brothers, Larry and Kenny Wenzel.

I gazed over the entire large field of fallen soldiers from past wars of WWI, WWII, Korean War, Viet-Nam, Persian Gulf, and the war in Iraq. Fallen soldiers that lay at this cemetery numbers in the thousands.

Each headstone had a large green pine Christmas Wreath, touch with a large Red Bow, which seemed to jump out at you as they leaned and rested on these gray headstones.

Do you have a recent scenic picture that shows the beauty of the lakes area?

Send it to for possible publication in the Neighbors section. Be sure to include your name, where you are from, a brief

description of the photo and when and where it was taken.
