July Fourth--Independence Day

Rolling Thunder 2010 - A Marine's Vigil
A solitary Marine holds vigil at full attention during the Rolling Thunder motorcycle rally in tribute to fallen comrades

This actually took place on Memorial Day, but I thought it was appropriate for Independence Day as a reminder that many have given their lives that we may remain free.   The Marine stood at attention with his head bent for hours showing his respect for fallen soldiers.
