Memorial Day At Grants Pass, Oregon

 

Memorial Day

The Boatnik races on the Rogue River were preceded by an elegant and touching Memorial Day tribute to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice. 

 

Memorial Day

Started by an F18 flyover by the Air Force, a memorial wreath moved slowly down the Rogue River, and seemed to defy the speed of the current and lingered while taps sounded.

Memorial Day

The "National Anthem" and "God Bless America" reverberated throughout Riverside Park at this Memorial Day tribute. 

Memorial Day

Our military was present on the bridge to fire a salute followed by the magnificent sound of bagpipes, which made this day ever more memorable.

Memorial Day

Ermal Williamson gave a thrilling and nostalgic Benediction.  Ermal is the John Wayne impersonator who has been with us in Grants Pass these last four days.

Memorial Day

He started out impersonating Gary Cooper, and now is carrying on for the "Duke."  "Duke" was Grand Marshal of our parade, and makes his home in Branson, Missouri.
