North Carolina XIV

The Guilford County Veterans Memorial is located in Greensboro, North Carolina.

It is a very beautiful location and honors many from the conflicts of the 20th century.

Located along some of the winding inner walls are these plaques attempting to tell the story and this map highlighting areas of Vietnam.

In another location this display cites quotes from soldiers in 'Nam.

They very clearly reflect the patriotism, loneliness and ambivalence of many of those that served. there are a couple of these that are just covered with our thoughts. I think the last one shown here is especially poignant, especially because at least to some degree all of that has changed.

The memorial may be found opposite the National Science Center whose address in 4301 Lawndale Drive, Greensboro.

Next time, on the 21st, we'll take another look at Oklahoma, so meet me there at 9:00am, as always.
