Kansas VIII

Along with The Wall replica honoring the 777 from Crowley County, Kansas (seen elsewhere on this site,) there are a couple of other interesting markers here.

Located just east of the Court House, these, too stand in silent remembrance.

On a list of POW/MIAs from Kansas, I could find none listed, but this symbol and the flag has come, over the years, to represent all who were POW/MIAs.

This tribute to Women is one of the few at the time of the photo, 5/11,  fortunately we have become much better at recognizing and honoring the contributions and service of the  11,000+ women who served in 'Nam. Beyond the eight nurses listed on The Wall, approximately 140 civilian women were lost, also.

Next time, on the 13th, we will return to Louisiana, so join me there, as always, at 9:00am.

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