It really is a beautiful ceremony complete with bag piper and dove release!
This year our keynote was the Mayor of Fort Worth, Betsy Price who gave a good speech about the importance of the day tying it into the history of our city.

Then each organization comes forward and places a wreath at the Dough Boy Statue followed by a 21 gun salute by the paralyzed honor guard.
I especially enjoy the ceremony because it’s an opportunity for me to show off my dad in his dress blues. He retired from the Air Force, Lt Col serving during the Vietnam War and I am very proud of him.
