Visit war memorials

Visit War Memorials
Sunday, July 03, 2011

Today as part of "Getting to Know your Hometown" of "Tallahassee" we visited several war memorials in the downtown area. The first was Korean War Memorial which was next to an area where there were construction work going on. We found profound meaning in the memorial.

Then we visited the World War II memorial in front of Florida History Museum and found all 67 counties have been represented. The Copper Wreath was very poignant.

Then we visited the Vietnam War Memorial in front of the Old and New Capitol Buildings. The huge American flag was still waving. There was a picture of solider and a small American flag at the base of the memorial.

We couldn't visit the Medal of Honor wall since the New Capitol was closed.
