A beautiful Memorial Day

By John Foster - Monday, May 26, 2008 at 05:28 PM

We had a great time today at the Idaho State Veterans Cemetery, where hundreds gathered near the Eagle foothills to pay tribute to those who served. Walt had this to say after the event:

“On days like today, we all remember those who served,” Minnick said. “But it’s tomorrow, and the next week and the next month, that define how we truly feel about veterans. Honoring them one day a year is not enough. We must also make sure they have top-notch health care and access to a wide range of educational and training opportunities. And we must fulfill every promise made when they enlisted and served.”

After the ceremony, we headed to Veterans Park in Boise for the annual picnic put on by the local post of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. Walt spent the afternoon hearing stories, telling a few of his own (he served in the U.S. Army during Vietnam) and talking to people about critical issues facing our veterans.

There was extensive media coverage of the day’s events. Read more at the Fox 12 News website and at And for a very cool treat, check out the special photo slideshow at They took a series of photos at the State Veterans Cemetery during the final hour of daylight. The results are stunning.
