Maryland IV

Located at the Talbot County Court House, in Easton, under some trees is the local Vietnam memorial. Consisting of two standing markers, it depicts, on the left, a map of Vietnam and the names of the ten from the area who were lost. On the right, a soldier is cradling his dying buddy, while a chopper attempts to arrive in time.

Next time, on the 11th, Veteran's Day, join me in Massachusetts to honor the only memorial I have seen that honors Black soldiers. This one will post at the 11th hour to honor Armistice Day which we now know as Veteran's Day.

  1. I love the quote on this one - very moving. I also never cease to be amazed at the different dates listed for the war on different memorials!
