Idaho VI

Very little information is to be found about this memorial. Called Veterans Peace Memorial Park, it stands just outside the Nampa, Idaho City Hall near the corner of 3rd Street south and Fifth Avenue South.

The memorial consists of a large rendition of the Ten Commandments next to a huge, unmarked rock.
Note the symbolic eternal flame near on the pole towards the right side of the picture..

This plaque is found on the site dedicated to those lost from Korea and Vietnam.

The Virtual Wall page lists 6 from the area as having been lost, but this stone, as you can see, lists seven.

Inside the lobby of the City Hall is another tribute to our brothers and sisters from Idaho, but I will leave that for another day.

Next time, on the 28th, we return to Illinois, so join me there, as always, at 9:00am.
