Memorial Day 2011, Belatedly

Better late than never!  Over the years, as I travel around, whether on vacation, on a bike trip locally, or even during walks after lunch at work, whenever I come across a war memorial I would take photos of the monuments.  Below are photos I took of the Korean War Memorial in Atlantic City, the Vietnam War Memorial and World War 2 Memorial on the waterfront in the south of Hoboken, a World War Memorial in Long Island City (it was erected in 1926, people couldn't foresee a World War 2 coming up in about 10 years), a memorial in Marine Park, Brooklyn, and the grave for Sergeant Alexander Kidd (on Governors Island, New York, I think).  A belated salute to the fallen!
