Southwest Florida Vietnam Memorial Wall

It was a cold and blustery day today so our morning walk with the dog was cut short, mostly because I'm a wimp and I was cold and because Titan did his business early.  Good boy!  Instead of walking to the hospital, we took a detour and walked to Veteran's Park, where they had started building the wall last year just before we left.  

It was very impressive to see the beautiful job that was done on this memorial.  It is approximately half the size of the wall in Washington, DC.  The wall is made of granite panels on which 58,000 names are engraved.  There are granite benches on which to sit and reflect, along with signs that designate it as a solemn site and asks visitors to respect it as such.  

It was dedicated on November 5, 2016 and is a really nice addition to an already nice part of the city.
