In honor of Memorial Day the lads and I visited Battleship Cove in Fall River MA. Go here for more information.

We had a great time milling around and exploring the ships and submarine. We got the tail end of the Memorial Day celebration. “Honor and commemorate the men and women who gave their lives for freedom. Experience a traditional military observance at 12:00 PM with the raising of the American flag from half-staff and a 21-gun salute.”
