favorite memorial is the one dedicated on July 27, 1995, the 42nd anniversary of the armistice that ended the war, to honor the Korean War. There is just something that pulls me to the 38 soldiers dressed for battle and in rain gear. I was there on a foggy morning once. and the conditions only highlighted the soldiers and the reflecting pool nearby. As others flock to the Lincoln and the Washington, ( I do visit them also) there is some unknown attraction to this one. Maybe, just maybe, it has something to do with my hundreds of little green soldiers, that my brother and I would set up and 'battle' with on the livingroom rug. Hey, I just remembered, I have one little, green soldier that sits on my desk at work. What's that all about anyway?
Happy Veterans' Day to all the vets out there, especially to my father-in-law Steve P. struggling with some health issues at the moment. He learned to drive handling a jeep in the 'good war' WWII, and if you ever drove with him in his station wagons, you know this is TRUE! It was always an adventure.
ps. this small monument is in Groveville near my work.
