Clueless in Boston a dit…

Another very sad, but beautiful monument. I had a relative on my father's side die in France in 1918 during the War. I have his medal and certificate signed by General Pershing and plan one day to research my great cousin's life. The centennial of 1914 is soon approaching and there should be many ceremonies and events marking the War.

A well sculptured memorial to all those millions of young person who lost their lives in that mindless war. You country suffered badly - they need to be honoured.

PERBS a dit…

Such a fitting memory bench! A great honor to those who served and to know they will never be forgotten.
