Memorial Day

From the website of the Polish city of Limanowa comes this image of a military chaplain, Col. Józef Joniec, a native of that city, celebrating Mass in May of 1944 after the Battle of Monte Cassino, close to the site which is now a Polish military cemetery.

The funeral of Col. Jerzy Jastrzebski, the first Pole killed in the battle, in which the Polish army played a vital role.
