Tombstone Tuesday, Vol. 2


This one isn't so much a "tombstone Tuesday" as it is a "memorial Tuesday." When I was in Jackson's Hole, Wyoming last summer to be a tourist and visit Yellowstone, I noticed this beautiful and moving memorial in the heart of the town in honor of the area's veterans.
"This beautiful memorial is dedicated in loving memory of the Teton County Veterans,
Jackson's Hole, Wyoming."
All along the sides of the memorial were lists of veterans and the fallen. It was especially interesting to look at how some sections (WWI, WWII, Korea and Viet Nam) were more weathered than others (Desert Storm, Iraq). If you ever get a chance to go to Jackson's Hole (and I highly recommend you do), be sure and check this site out, though it would be pretty hard to drive through town and miss it.
