Memorial Day weekend at the Presidio

My husband wanted to do something for memorial day with the kids that would not be shopping, but will show work and sacrifice. Though Quaker descendant and antiwar, he decided to take us all to visit Presidio for memorial day. While visiting the tomb of the soldiers at Presidio with my husband and kids during memorial day weekend, we saw tombs that were from different religious denominations and how the people who go to fight are young kids who could be just hanging out hand having snicker bars
