New Mexico XII

A little more than 25 miles north of Santa Fe is Espanola which is the home of a beautiful Veteran's memorial that honors all from Northern New Mexico who have served.

It lists more than 2000 names, but does not specify service branches, rank etc.

A Walk of Honor provides places for individual remembrances.

100 red and white rose bushes surround the area but were not in bloom when I visited.

The fountain, seen in the first and second pic,  provides a restful water pool for reflection, but was not turned on the day I visited the site. This wall is the outer face and proclaims the gratitude of the community.

There are other sites here, so if in the area be sure to check out this great spot.

Next time, on the 16th, we will return to New York, so, join me there at 9:00am., as always.

To see additional memorials from New Mexico, or any other state, click the state name on the left side of this page.
