Voting: Patriotic

I had great plans for this challenge. I was going to take a picture of my great-grandfather's navy medals (he fought in WWII and was a career sailor). Unfortunately, it didn't happen, due to a number of which, not the least of which was that my mom fell down the stairs Sunday afternoon (5 weeks after shoulder surgery, while she's still in a sling). My great plans will have to wait for another challenge. I loved everyone else's photos though!

So here's the voting rundown for this challenge. I want you to vote first for the most inspiring photo, and also for the best overall. Don't forget any and all shoutouts!

(And if I don't get the votes up early Tuesday morning, I'll do it later in the afternoon/evening. I fly home Tuesday, and finally get to see my husband after nearly two weeks!!)
