View 230: A Salute to American Veterans

Walt Disney is quoted as saying, “Actually, if you could see close in my eyes, the American flag is waving in both of them and up my spine is growing this red, white and blue stripe.”  The Disney parks follow Walt’s quote with patriotic shows such as the American Adventure in Epcot where a few times daily the Spirit of America Fife & Drum Corps pay tribute to America, her veterans and those who lost their lives in defending her.

Over in the Magic Kingdom, the daily Flag Retreat ceremony honors a veteran in attendance for his service and to all veterans.

On honor of our Country's fallen, I photographed this veteran during the Magic Kingdom Flag Retreat ceremony last Fall at Walt Disney World.
