Portland Veterans Medical Center. I went here recently to meet up with Sandy, my friend from Wyoming. She served in the Army in the 70s.
While waiting for her in the lobby, in just a short hour, hundreds of veterans, men and women (some walking, some in wheelchairs, some with canes) came through the doors.
Center stage in the background is a veteran volunteer playing “ I’ll Be Seeing You “ on the piano. A most heart-warming way to balance the solemn atmosphere.
Above him, on the wall is the quote: “ the price of Freedom is visible here “
Our appreciation to all those who served and continue to serve our country.
