Yesterday, Memorial Day, I had the opportunity to visit Memorial Gardens in Memphis to document their annual Memorial Day Celebration.
100-year-old World War II veteran John Franklin was there and has been participating for countless years.
Franklin seemed to be overwhelmed by the crowd of people that wanted to hug him and thank him for his service.
Shelby County Mayor Mark H. Luttrell addressed the crowd speaking of veterans sacrifices.
Bankhead's Battery fired 3 powerful and resounding shots from their cannon.
I am currently working on the photos for publication on the Events page of this site, so come back often and check the Event's page.
Have a great day!
