Day 147 - Memorial Day

Frederick's Memorial Park pays homage to its veterans who have served our country. The monuments for World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War are engraved with the names of those Frederick countians who were killed in action. It's a very peaceful and respectful spot in which to reflect and remember those who have been lost.

Lew's Pics tells about the Vietnam veteran we talked with today who told us about an Air Force crewman, missing for 36 years, whose remains have recently been identified.
