Michigan VII

A Phantom II, a Huey, and a wall of names. These are all located in Freedom Hill County Park, along 16 Mile Road in Macomb County, Michigan.

The 149 honored here will be forever remembered by family, friends, loved ones, and anyone who happens upon this solemn remembrance.

Sponsored, largely, by VVA Chapter 154, there are several components here that should be noted. In addition to the aircraft, there is the marker with a soldiers words upon it, a marker to those lost to their wounds, physical or otherwise at a later time.

Many quotes are often included at these sites. In fact, you see the same ones in many places,This one, however, seems to be unique.

I suspect that no one foresaw the havoc that Agent Orange and other calamities that would befall vets, but we need to keep reminding those who make decisions to send other peoples sons and daughters to war of what the real cost may be.

Next time, on the 28th, I will post a few more interesting elements of this site. So, join me, as usual, at 9:00am.
