Maine XVII

Old Orchard Beach lies about a half an hour north of Kennebunkport, Me.

A lovely New England town that features a Veterans Memorial Park. Like many of these, the park has sports fields and facilities, picnic areas, and kids playgrounds, etc. The Park is nearly in Saco Bay so water sports are easily accessed, too.

The memorials area of the park is spread out over a fairly large area and from some angles nearly secluded by trees.

This first, largest view, as you can see, nearly conceals the larger memorials here.

This view shows the largest of the markers in the park. You can see that one plaque is missing, the one in the center is to WWII vets and the one on the right is to a specific Catholic Chaplin.

Down at what might be called the entrance is this stone which honors WWI vets.

Vietnam and Korea are remembered on this separate stone.

Located at 4 Heath Street it is a beautiful park and should not be missed if in the area. If you visit, take a moment to stop and honor those who who made such sacrifices over so many years.

Next time on the 23rd, we will return to Maryland, so join me there at 9:00am.
