This one was for the troops.
The Obama White House couldn’t find time to make its own contribution to the festivities, but Armed Forces Day was celebrated in a big way in Washington Saturday with Honor Flights bringing America’s veterans in from all over the country so they could enjoy the day’s activities and visit the memorials of a grateful country to their sacrifices for freedom.
Here’s a photo tweeted of Honor Flight Mike, out of Milwaukee — big anticipatory smiles.

And here’s Talons Out Honor Flight out of Grand Rapids, Mich., shortly after their arrival in Washington, D.C.
Everyone appreciates a good welcome and a “thank you for your service.”
Armed Forces Day not only honors those who are currently serving in uniform, but also veterans and those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. All of America’s fallen are represented by a single monument — a tomb. A somber, respectful ceremony was held there.
The day was perfect for the veterans as they visited their own special memorials — World War II, Korean War and Vietnam War.
There are few sights more awe-inspiring than a good silent drill team — and the Marines are among the best.
