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.
