Day is Done . . .

Above, the MIA table, set for one.

We observed a Veterans Day with a long-time friend at the Washington Crossing National Cemetery, which was recently established but is filling up all too quickly.

It was a reverent and moving ceremony with some wonderful musical selections, particularly those by soprano Tiffany Pao and trumpeters Tom Molnar and Kathleen McCall, who did an echo version of Taps.   Here are some of the photos.

Cantor David Wisnia, an 86-year-old Auschwitz escapee who found his way to — and fought with — the 101st Airborne Division, gave a moving sung-and-translated Aaron’s blessing. He is the father of Rabbi Eric Wisnia who leads Congregation Beth Chaim.

“May the Lord bless us and keep us and cause his face to shine upon us and be gracious unto us . . . “
