World War II Memorial

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 11 November 2018 in Miscellaneous.

A memorial on Capitol Lake in Pierre, South Dakota. The bronze statues represent the different roles South Dakotans played in the war.

It's Veteran's Day in the USA. My sincere respect to all veterans everywhere.

Today is the day of memory for your country as for mine. Very nice tribute to these men who fought to stay as free as possible

Beautiful tribute! Alas your "great" President D. Trump did not wish to do the same yesterday, canceling in France his visit to the American Cemetery, because of the rain !
