Is it really from a burial?

Henry Scoggin on February 24, 2012

Yes, I was at the National Military Cemetery here in Arlington Texas the other day. There were two funerals going on while I was there. A lot of the old soldiers from the Viet-nam war era bought Harley-Davidson Motorcycles or other large highway bikes after the war. They could go cruize together after the war and have a fellowship with fellow soldiers that had been through what they had experienced. Many funerials for this era of soldiers have procesions containing many bikes and riders from then with Flags to honor who they were.

A very nice gesture, both from his friends and from you. Thanks for sharing.

Nobody does patriotism quite like the Americans.... if you fly the Australian flag on your car on Australia Day (January 26th)the the feel good social engineers tell us we are predominantly "Racist" !! Beautiful photo Henry and keep flying old Glory!!

Hear hear GG, the rot's got to stop! Almost enough to wish we were in the USA where their finest have almost universal respect. Great shot Henry of an old patriot and an old patriotic marque!
