Arizona X

Lake Havasu City lies in the northwest corner of Arizona and may be better known for being the home of The London Bridge than for this memorial, but we know which is actually more important.

Wheeler Park is one of several in the city and is home to this beautiful remembrance.

Mostly stone, this tribute stands, forever, honoring those who served and those who were lost.

The services are honored by the plaques on the right side beneath the eagle.

The other side features a plaque dedicated specifically to two who were lost and a unique "engraving."

The engraving, etched into the panel, a bit hard to see here, is of a lit candle above praying hands. I can't say that I have ever seen anything quite like this before.

In past posts I have talked about memorials often being similar in design, either some kind of a Wall, comrades on patrol or helping a wounded buddy, or featuring aircraft, usually a Huey and I love them all, but I really enjoy those, like this one, that are just a little bit different. Good job, Lake Havasu City!

Next time, on the 9th, return with me to California, as always, at 9:00am.
