POW - Medal of Honor
Lens: DA Ltds Camera: K20D Photo Location: Riverside National Cem ISO: 100

Veteran's memorial.




POW/MIA memorial.






Medal of Honor memorial.




Water usually (or sometimes) is falling off the cross-piece.


There is a long history of recipients back to the Civil War.


No doubt it will continue.

Thanks for the nice comments. I goofed (and fixed) the first description, which is the Veteran's memorial.

I believe most 'civilians' fail to recognize that most MoH's are given posthumously.

Nice photos of touching monuments.
