New Jersey XVI

This memorial sits on the lawn of the Raws-Tait VFW in Somerdale, New Jersey.

William Raws and William Tait were both fallen heroes of WWII and the front of the memorial bears plaques to each of them.

No other names from any war are listed here except for a small plaque directly in front of the memorial to someone who served in WWII but died in 1977. No explanation is given.

The Vietnam memorial sits to the right of the memorial and is mirrored by a Korean memorial on the left.

A check of the Virtual Wall shows no names from Somerdale lost in Vietnam.

I walked around the grounds of the VFW to see if anyone was around to no avail, but I did find this interesting item among various plants along with a couple of tribute stones, for lack of a better name, to the various Services.

The VFW is located at 10 Kennedy Boulevard, Somerdale, NJ.

Next time, on the 18th, we will visit New Mexico, so join me there, as always, at 9:00am.
