New Mexico VI

Springer, New Mexico lies about 60 miles east of the National Memorial in Angel Fire. This very small town has created a remarkable memorial site to all veterans. As of the 2010 census, a few more than 1000 people lived in and around the town.

Many memorials to our different involvements are under the roofed, fenced, area.

51 Vietnam vets are listed on the gray granite on the lawn of the former Colfax County Court House, which is now a museum.

There are several pieces here that honor our brothers and sisters and also an interesting POW memorial. I will spend more time on these in the next post.

So, to see more from this surprising site, join me on the 17th at 9:00am.
