Some Thoughts Written in Stone

Many will party, picnic and even fish over Memorial Day Weekend.  Just remember the price that was paid for our freedom.  Raise a glass to those who have paid the price.

What follows is a few National monuments to remember the Fallen.  Included are local tributes that are found on Military Installations and Texas Barriers scattered in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Col. Don Taylor, 332nd Expeditionary Medical Group commander at Balad Air Base, Iraq, stands in front of the Air Force Theater Hospital’s “barrier art,” a mural it took him more than a month to paint. Barrier art is found throughout the base and is an expression of unit pride and esprit de corps. His design, featuring the red-tailed P-51 Mustang, pays homage to the 332nd Air Expeditionary Wing’s Tuskegee Airmen heritage. (U.S. Air Force photo)
