Saturday, April 22, 2017:  Mark and Paula, along with good friend Shane Toven, visited the year-old Nevada Veterans Memorial. 
The site is at 555 East Washington Avenue, about ten blocks northeast of Fremont street where you find the old downtown Las Vegas. 
It is not easy to find on the Internet, but is worth seeing during the day, as above.
The memorial nicely lit at night and inspiring too.  The statues are a bit larger than life....about 7-1/2 feet tall.
This statue depicts a Revolutionary War soldier.
Civil War and World War One soldiers were there too.
Shown also are statues of family members waiting for their loved one to come home.
A World War Two soldier is here.  Over 400,000 U.S. soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen died in the conflict. 
Some 50 million died world wide.  China alone lost 14 million to the ruthless hands of the Japanese.  Most of those deaths were civilians.
A Vietnam soldier, with his M60 Machine Gun, stands with a grim expression.

Quote of the day:    An awe-inspiring place.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
