Maine IV

Not too very far from where I was staying in Freeport is Lewiston. The woman who worked at the reception desk of our hotel is from Lewiston and told me about the site that was built after the traveling Wall visited the town. The site which is dedicated to all vets and all wars is very beautiful. Each of the monuments commemorates a different American involvement. A river with falls as a backdrop makes for a very dramatic setting.

The marker for the traveling Wall is quite small but is made more powerful by the fact that a capsule containing items of tribute brought to the spot by visitors is buried beneath it.
