I am forever grateful to my shipmates and all the members of the armed forces who died while serving their country. Today is Memorial Day. It is a federal holiday in the United States for remembering the people who died while serving in the armed forces. (I served in the US Navy, and Mr. Mickey served in the US Army.)
The Flags for Heroes were placed to remember and honor Johnson County natives killed or missing in action (KIA/MIA) in wars from the Spanish-American War forward to the present time. More than one hundred and twenty American flags and crosses, with the name and branch of service for each veteran, were placed in Mountain City, TN. The Iron Mountain Riders (IMR) and the support of Worley Hall VFW Post number 6908 and the Johnson County Veterans Affairs Office initiated the project.
Our reason for being in Mountain City was to enjoy a splendid evening meal at Vistas Land & Sea Grille located at the RedTail Mountain Resort.
I am wearing heels because they are Mr. Mickey’s favorites. He asked me not to sell these. I can still tolerate them for a couple of hours. They are a couple of years old from Macy’s. The tank top was from Express last year. The pants are by Lior Paris, and the jacket is by Clara Sunwoo. Both these items are from My Fair Lady.
We enjoy sitting on the terrace to take in the awe-inspiring view with a glass of champagne before being seated for dinner.
