Kudos to Lowcountry blogger Joan Perry for the above photo and for putting up with some lousy weather to show respect to Medal of Honor recipients as they traveled by trolley along the Charleston Battery, part of the Medal of Honor Society Convention taking place this weekend.
“Sadly it rained continuously and not many of us stuck it out,” she writes on Charleston Daily Photo. “Those who did energetically waved damp flags as our heroes went by on their white trolleys. Hopefully the rest of their activities will go as planned. It is an honor to have them here.”
Indeed is an honor, and it’s nice that folks like Joan took the time and put up with some inconvenient weather to show respect to a group of men whose contribution to our country can never be overstated.
