Utah IV

This Dough Boy from WWI stands guard over all those who have joined him over the years in the Price, Utah Peace Garden. Located at 100 E. Main Street the Carbon County Memorial honors those from many wars.

The plaque on one side of the statue names those from WWI through Vietnam who were lost.

One the other side, five more of our brothers are honored, also.

On the way out of town I stopped for gas and met these guys. The human part of the duo told me he is a 'Nam vet from Pennsylvania! They had been traveling the country together for quite some time and if I remember correctly they were on their way to South Dakota. Quite a journey!

Next time, we will visit the Utah Cultural Celebration Center in West Valley City. Here, another example of a memorial built by the Vietnamese community to thank us for our efforts in their country. Join me on the 6th, as ever,at 9:00am to pay tribute to these who are lost.
