Memorial Day in a Small Texas Town

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Beam & Branch Realty TREC #547752

                     

In our historic, Texas town, we celebrate Memorial Day in a big way. We are proud Texans who hold our military and our fallen veterans in very high esteem. As you drive into Granbury this time of year, you will be greeted by our beautiful, Field of Flags.

As you drive into Granbury, the Field of Flags greets you proudly as the red, white, and blue flags wave their colors proudly. Make sure you take a moment to stop by and take a walk through the field. You will be moved as you recognize what this holiday really means.

Men and women have sacrificed their lives in order for all of us to remain free. Thank you to those who went before us and laid their lives down for our freedom. We are forever indepted to each one.

We have many a flag along the streets in our town as well. But a cluster of them as you show would be impressive

Beautiful photo! I've been working all weekend at our Field of Honor® event where we have 1,000+ flags flying. It's been quite an experience.

Hi Paula,
There isn't anything much more poignant than a field of flags.  We owe our Fallen soldiers a huge debt of gratitude.

The field of flags brings up a lot of sadness for me - knowing what they represent. We do owe our freedom to our fallen soldiers. I am among the "lucky" ones to come from a military family that fought in many wars.  My father was eventually declared 100% disabled, yet no family member was lost in a war.
