Florida IX

This is the second post from Tampa and the site is not the largest I have ever visited, but it does have an awful lot of things to see.

 The Huey has a sign on its side remembering one of its own.

The Cobra has a number of plaques just beneath it to honor some of its partners in 'Nam.

The women lost in 'Nam are not forgotten, either. I wonder if you know that one of the eight women killed was an Irish citizen who came here to to join our efforts in-country? She is one of many Irish who did this and their story is told elsewhere on this site.

Numerous pavers have been placed to honor specific individuals.

Next time, we will visit, Idaho, again. So, join me on the 8th of June, as always, at 9:00am.
