Motto: Construimus, Battuimus" if you don't know what it means, take a moment out of your busy life and look it up. Dad was CSW in the Pacific where he took part on Iwo Jima, Corregidor, Okinawa and Nagasaki (shot photos of Nagasaki from the ship)...While he had photos of each place he was stationed, dad never wanted to talk about the war. B. 1919-D. 1971

    Amen, Sweet William. God bless the troops, past, present and future. I come from a long, long line of soldiers, and my oldest son, Manny, just got invited to attend West Point, carrying on a proud tradition from my Grandfather. Those men who defended us in WW2 set the pace for life as we know it, and thank God for it. This is such a loving tribute. Many of these men fought, and remained silent, like your Dad. Such were men oif the times.

    Nice. Love the clouds. What is so amazing about this memorial is its MASSIVE size. I was shocked to see that the top of the wreath/writing was about 6 feet off the ground

    Wonderful tribute William - my second cousin fought in Vietnam and has never wanted to speak of it. I did a paper in college on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (specifically in Vietnam Vets) and the 5 men who were willing to meet with me and discuss their experiences were hard to find. Most don't want to discuss it and it is to be respected.
