Sepia Scenes - Memorial

I continue with the Memorial Day theme for Mary's Sepia Scenes

Here is a unique neighborhood memorial in our town of Ansonia, this being the Woodbridge Avenue Honor Roll. Originally built in 1942, it was updated to now include Korea and Vietnam casualties.

The stone construction shows strength and permanence - I hope of the memory of the bravest from our town who served and sacrificed. Their memory is maintained...

And eventually Desert Storm I and II and Afganistan. It will be very nice when we are able to stop building memorials to our war dead.

Seems very appropriate in sepia, Ralph. I like how the markers are on a hill so it can all be seen at once.

We haven't anything like this in Sweden. I think it's very good to take time to remember the brave ones and those who fought for our freedom. It looks very good in sepia :)
