The War Memorial
The traveling Vietnam Wall was in our area this week, so I took the girls and Matthew to see it the last day it was here. The town of Tallapoosa has a beautiful veterans memorial park. Many people have invested a lot of time and hard work, and it definitely shows. It is a beautiful reminder of how we should honor all the men and women who have given/are giving so much for our freedom. This park is where they had the wall set up. They also had a museum inside the old Tallapoosa gymnasium. I tried to time it so we wouldn't be there with a school group, but one showed up about five minutes after we got there. So we quickly looked through the memorabilia and then headed outside and looked at the wall, walked through the park, and took some photos before the rain started pouring.
