New York IX

About an hour or so south (and a little east) of Buffalo is Salamanca.

They have a beautiful Veterans Memorial Park here and many are honored and remembered. There are several memorials and seven who were lost in 'Nam are listed on this one.

There are a great number of these stones, about 700 hundred I have read,  with names upon them, but no other information is posted and I could find nothing on line, so, as always, if you know anything, let me know.

The 'Nam memorial has two interesting components. It refers to the war as the Indo-China War, which is not unheard of, but rare on memorials.

The other is the remembrance of all those from other nations who gave their all for the effort, too.

The park is located at 520 broad Street and has many recreational activities open to the public.

Next time, on the 24th, we will drop in again to North Carolina,
so join me there, as usual, at 9:00am.

To see other memorials from New York, or any other state, click the state name on then left side off this page.
