Swiftwick is thankful for our soldiers

By May 25, 2015Spotlight

In military traditions throughout time, there have been various methods of performing salutes, such as: using hand gestures, cannon or rifle shots, hoisting of flags and removal of headgear. Salutes show respect, which is exactly what we would like to do today. We are thankful for all of the men and women who serve our country. Here are some of Swiftwick’s Soldier Salutes in honor of Memorial Day.
