The memorial garden

While walking down the Freedon Trail I came apond this site. The medal s of the dog tags rang slowly and I read the sign. It stated that this site was a memorial made of the dog tags of fallen soldiers of this current war. My heart broke for these brave men & women, who gave up their lives so we may keep our idea of freedom. This is a wicked war and we should end it soon, before more of these tags grace this memorial!

No one is a member of "Anna-Lys and Wonderings", but myself :-)
So, You can't be a member, sorry! I have not found how to close it without throwing it away. I do like to keep it and read it by myself once in a while through time.

Thanks for asking! <3

What a beautiful idea, I love how the dog tags look, almost like windchimes. It is so sad, especially with this particular war.

It does make me sad, and I get angry thinking about all the people, especially the children, of Iraq being hurt and murdered.

Sad for all their families ... and even more so, as it seems a wasted war in many ways.

Wow, that wall is incredible. The dog tags are really a very moving symbol... almost moreso even than an engraved name.

They used to use metal tags during Viet Nam Korea and WWII, with a rounded indentation along the edge with which to place the tag between teeth to keep from being lost and identify the soldier(just one tag). Now I think they use plastic tags to keep the noise down when soldier is trying to remain quiet but they still have the indention.
I threw mine out.
