Colorado XXII

I have posted from Colorado Springs before, but when I revisited the site earlier this year I found a memorial specifically to Vietnam that Is either new or, for some reason, I may have missed it the first time.

Regardless, here it is.

This is the central tower of the memorial. In a large circle surrounding it are a number of memorials to different wars and warriors. It stands just off South Union Blvd. adjacent to the Olympic Training Center.

There are several memorials here dedicated to those who served or were lost in 'Nam. This is the most general, dedicated to all from Colorado who made the ultimate sacrifice.

This last pic is of the dedication plaque at the bottom of the memorial.

The Memorial Park is a central meeting and recreational facility for Colorado Springs. Many, many activities are available and festivals of many kinds are held here. when we were visiting in June, an Irish Fest was taking place in the park.

Next time, on the 14th, we will once again, visit Connecticut,so join me there, as always, at 9:00am

To see other memorials from Colorado, or any other state, click the state name on the left side of this page.

I might also remind you, here, that if you "click" on a picture, it will enlarge for better viewing.
