Tour Notes

This stop started a long summer day. I noticed the original obelisk did not have service seals for Marines or Coast Guard and was momentarily peeved. Then I saw another marker which corrected the errors. I am always amazad when I find a monument that does not recognize all five services. And now, with the establishment of the Space Force I can envision that 25 or 30 years from now some of its' veterans will stand in front of a monument and shake their heads as I do now.
