Maryland XI

Centerville lies in Queen Anne's County on the eastern shore of Maryland. Founded long before the Revolutionary War she has a long history of fighting for the U.S.

 In 1992 a new memorial was built to honor this tradition and sacrifice and while it, like so many, honors many who participated in many wars, it does pay homage to our brothers who were lost in Vietnam.

In addition to the names engraved upon this wall, there a dozens of these markers remembering those who served.

Note that the Vietnam vet named here served in the Merchant Marine, a group that does not always get the credit they deserve.

This plaque sits at the base of the wall.

Located at the County Court House on the Court House green it may be found at North Commerce Street and Broadway..

Next time, on the 16th, we head back to Massachusetts, so meet me there, as always, at 9:00am.
