Tucson did an awesome thing to recognize the more than 9,600 men and women that have died serving in Iraq and Afghanistan since 9/11. As a prelude to the Tucson Veterans’s parade, they held a ceremony to honor them and volunteers read each name (it took more than 12 hours). Don and I participated. I was a reader and he was a bell ringer (needless to say that is not us in the picture). It was very touching and sobering. We also visited a beautiful church that was near the site of the ceremony.
