Every nation knows what it means. Someone died in military service to their country. In USA the last Monday in May is the day we pay special tribute to the fallen, particularly those that fell in battle. I have been privileged to travel with an honor casket. It is an occasion I will never forget. This image was taken at Ft. Snelling National Cemetery several years ago. Though not officially titled, the picture is often referred to as Sentry Duty. I always found it fitting that the national bird would watch over the honored dead.
