New York XXIII

We have visited Wallkill before but there is so much here to show you, so just a small one today.

Last time we saw the huge Wall to those who served and/or were lost, but in wandering through the park I came across what must be an older memorial to both Vietnam and Korea. 

This is more common than you might think. At some point in time a small memorial or a joint one like this is erected and as time goes on it just does not seem like enough, so a newer more elaborate or dignified or fitting one, solely to Nam, is built. The same thing happened in my town. A small plaque was placed dedicated to all who served, but listed no names. Later we wanted something more fitting and built a new one listing all 130 names from our county.


So, without really having enough information I am still sure that this happened here in Wallkill also.

As you can see there are no names listed here. If you click on New York on the left side of this page you can find the newer Wall with all honored.

The park may be found at the corner of Rte. 17M and Highland Avenue.

Next time, on the 26th, we will head into Pennsylvania, so join me there, as always, at 9:00am.

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