This is a video I did about 11 years ago while working for the Virginian-Pilot and HamptonRoads.tv in Norfolk, Va.
An amazing friend and musician Todd “Tones” Jones produced and played on the track. He’s an amazing guitarist as you will hear. When I first heard this track, I immediately knew I had to create a Memorial Day tribute video. I filmed all the locations throughout the entire Hampton Roads area. (this was pre-HD, sorry) Please enjoy and share!
ARMY, NAVY, AIRFORCE, MARINES, COAST GUARD, NATIONAL GUARD…..THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE

My Father Paul F. Frontiero Sr. never misses this Ceremony. He is 85 years old and Legally Blind, but you can still seem him walking around Main st. and at the Senior Center everyday. Paul was a Coxswain of an LCVP invasion boat in the WWII Pacific Theater. He Drove the LCVP in many Invasions such as; Saipan, Tinian, leyte and more I can’t remember at the moment. He has some great stories of his time in the Pacific. Say hi if you ever seem him Downtown.

We who are left how shall we look again
Happily on the sun or feel the rain
Without remembering how they who went
Ungrudgingly and spent
Their lives for us loved, too, the sun and rain?
