On Sunday my friend, Leslie, and I went with a group of people to attend the International Tattoo performance. It is part of Norfolk, Virginia's Festival Of Arts.
I had never been so it was an exciting and very moving event. My late husband, Elbert, served in Vietnam. The Tattoo was honoring the veterans who fought in that war. Outside the Scope, Les and I viewed the Vietnam Memorial Traveling Wall (The Wall That Heals). This memorial is about 1/2 the size of the Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington, D.C. It lists every member of the military, both men and women, who lost their lives in Vietnam. The total number is 58,286.
There were also jeeps and helicopters and other things from that era that were on display. Although I took over 100 pictures I decided that today I would concentrate my blog on what was going on outside the arena.
SCOPE ARENA - NORFOLK, VA.
I did not get a picture of Scope so I borrowed this one from sevenvenues.com.

If you get a chance to see the International Tattoo you really should! So patriotic, so stirring.
