Me and Steve McQueen: Memorial Day Weekend, 2013

Memorial Day Weekend was all about remembering veterans (especially those who gave all), and American POWs and those still MIA, and motorcycles, and movies, and food and friends. Here, in no particular order, are a few images from the weekend's most memorable activities.
