Mississippi IV

Armory is a town of just over 7100, 27 miles southeast of Tupelo.

I wondered in and came upon this memorial. For anyone new to this site, I will explain that this is called a multi-war memorial. It honors those who served and/or were lost from more than one war. These are quite common and more so in smaller areas that are unable to support different memorials to different wars.

 In many ways, I think this type of site helps tell the history of a place as one can see that multiple generations served their country. too often one sees the same names repeated over and over.

This site commemorates many and includes the  from Vietnam.

It is located at the intersection of  6th Street S. and Hwy 278E.

Next time, on the 26th, we will take another look at Nebraska, so, meet me there at 9:00am.
