California XXXVIII

Guadalupe is located about 3 1/2 hours north of Los Angeles along the Pacific coast. A town of fewer than eight thousand, they dedicated this memorial to the three from the area that were lost in 'Nam.

Many small towns, understandably, do not have individual memorials to every war. Guadalupe decided that our brothers from this particular war were to be honored with there own. Thank you, Guadalupe!

This memorial was dedicated in 2002 but it may surprise you that, nearly 20 years later' memorials to our lost brothers and sisters are still being built. There is a new one in Rome, NY and one, not yet completed in Nebraska. just too name a couple. If I ever get back on the road I hope to visit them and then bring them to you here. So, keep checking back to see whats next.

Next time, on the 15th, we will return to Massachusetts, so join me there, as usual, at 9:00am.
