Florida XV

Homestead, Florida is the home to many Military service man and women, and you may recall that it was devastated, a number of years ago, by a massive hurricane.

Knowing that there was such a strong military presence and history here, Steve and I decided to see if we might find a memorial, here, too.

We were not disappointment as we were able to locate this one in Losner Park.

Elegant in its simplicity, it honors all veterans.

The large stone is the main feature and it is surrounded by a number of individual memorials to various wars.

The one minor issue we had with it, was that it seemed nearly hidden, back in this corner of a quite small park.

I just read today that last March, it was decided to move it to a new location at City Hall.

So, if you want to see it in its original location, at Krome Avenue and Jasmine Way, you better hurry on over.

Next time, on the 1st of October, we will check out Georgia, so join me there, as always, at 9:00am.
