Texas XV Faces of Remembrance

The Faces of Remembrance series of posts hopes to convey some of the feelings of the men and women who experienced the war and efforts of the sculptors to capture these feelings.

For context
 This memorial in San Antonio, reflects a fairly common theme: comrades helping comrades.

This one, I think does a particularly good job of capturing the horror and grief of seeing your buddy injured or killed and a "devil take all" effort to help him.

This memorial is based upon a photograph taken at the battle of Khe Sanh and Hill 881, among others.

Next time, on the 29th, we will return to Virginia, so join me there at 9:00am.
