South Dakota V

Headed towards North Dakota, to visit Bismarck and a few other sites, I passed many Bison, Pronghorn Antelope and other magnificent creatures and eventually I came to the town of McLaughlin, practically on the N.D. border. As I was driving down South Main Street I came across this simple memorial. Built in 1951 to honor WWI and WWII veterans in the local Veteran's Park, it was later updated to include Korean and Vietnam vets, too. There are no names listed here so one can only imagine the sacrifices and sorrows, triumphs and heroism, of those, who for us, at least, will always be nameless. But, no less heroes.
