North Carolina XVIII

High Point is a city about 20 miles southwest of Greensboro. Known by many as the furniture manufacturing capitol of the country and it is also home to many sports stars, writers, entertainers and James Dickey, author of Deliverance. Interestingly, it also the only city in North Carolina that lies in four countys.

The memorial there is a multi-war memorial honoring several different wars.

The memorial sits upon a plaza that is covered with the names of many who served and a variety of supporters.

No names on the memorial itself, but we are remembered among the several other 20th Century involvements listed here.

Next time, on the 24th, we will return to Oregon, so join me there, as always, at 9:00am.
