Maryland XXXI

Ocean Pines as mentioned in a recent post is a community adjacent to the Atlantic Ocean resort town of Ocean City, Maryland.

While there to visit The Wall That Heals recently, I was happy to discover that the Worcester County Veterans Memorial was on the same site.

Dedicated to many, it of course honors those from the county who served in or were lost in Vietnam.

The flags, not counting the POW/MIA flag, were new to me and I was glad to find this explanation posted nearby.

One of the several placards speaks to the service and sacrifice of those who served in 'Nam.

Another nice touch is the inclusion of the POW/MIA chair.

The text in the photo is a bit hard to read. It says:
"Since World War II more than 82,000
American soldiers are unaccounted for.
This unoccupied seat is dedicated to
the memory of these brave men 
and women and to the sacrifices each 
made in serving our country.

God Bless You  God Bless America"

Similar chairs are found throughout the nation.

Next time, on the 18th, we will return to Pennsylvania, so join me there, as always, at 9:00am.
