NEW CITY OF LAKEWOOD VETERAN’S MEMORIAL


I have written previously about how moved I was when I first read the poem that was featured on the veterans memorial located in the City Of Lakewood, California. I still get choked up when I recall that moment. When I learned the poem’s bronze plaque had been stolen, I was furious and very frustrated at my inability to do any thing about the crime. However, the citizens of our city came up with a classy remedy. They built a bigger and better monument! Here are a few images I recently made of the new monument. Please read the poem.

I am 87 years old and married for 65 years. My wife passed away in 2016. I am a retired engineer and spent 35 years developing INS gyroscopes. I was a High School mentor in physics, a mountaineer, a model builder, a machinist and I have a degree in Physics. My interests include railroad history and photography, science history, cosmology, interesting people, and old engineering drawings. I place a high value on my friendships. I enjoyed my life and I am trying to look forward with a sense of anticipation and curiosity.
