Vietnam War Memorial
Today was Columbus day and unlike most people that didn't go to work I did. We were at the Municipal Auditorium pretty much all day. We had a break for lunch and then one in between sessions. We were glad to go on the break because it was frakkin cold inside and it allowed us to warm up a little. While we were out there we crossed the street to the Southwestern Bell/AT&T building. In front of that is a plaza with a Korean War Memorial and a Vietnam War Memorial. I had been in the general area a number of times before, but I had not noticed the memorials. This time I wanted to make sure to get some pics. I took a couple of pics of both the memorials. I liked how much this inanimate figure emotes.
If you're wondering why I chose this memorial over the other for this post, there was only one reason...my tio (although my sister says he's really a cousin, but whatever) served and came back from Vietnam, so this is for him and all those others that serve...then and now and for those that will serve in the future.
