Korean War Memorial

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

@tyan: Each face is different, and are to depict the variety of the American soldiers' nationalities.
Thank you for your warm hugs ... as we wait for medical reports.

MJ and I were there this weekend and took many photos which I will be posting shortly. We visited each memorial on Saturday and did Arlington Cemetery on Sunday. It was a very emotional weekend for both of us to be there to honor our fathers at the WWII memorial.

An excellent image of the Korean memorial, Judy. I like that the sun isn't glaring off the statues! Well done.

15 Jun 2009 4:19pm

@Betty: I'll look forward to your photos, Betty; glad you and MJ could go.
I can imagine the emotions for your fathers, and to see such tributes on the mall, in the midst of a huge city is incredible.
We had intermittent sun, so you're right, there was less glare than in some of the photos I've seen from others.

This is a very stunning memorial! Very impressive shot! I am so glad your are regaining your strength. It is so hard to do after surgery. I'm still trying after rotator cuff surgery. I don't think I'll every get back to normal. Keep the faith and stay motivated!

15 Jun 2009 10:00pm

@Lambspun: Thank you very much ... and as for regaining strength, I've got age 'against' me so it's taking a lot of effort. Today's heat index is to be 105-110 so the stationary bicycle is going to get a workout! ♥

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Great shot Judy......they are truly lifelike....and one memorial i have not yet seen in thanks for sharing it!! Glad to hear you're feeling stronger.....I hope you're walking early in the morning, and after 7 at night.....otherwise....with this miserable heat & humidity, you could make yourself sicker!!!

15 Jun 2009 10:23pm

@Susan: Thanks, Susan ... and Barbara said she saw the heat index to be between 105-110 today. I didn't wake until after sunrise, so the stationary bike will get used several times today!

This certainly is a remarkable memorial. A fine tribute. They almost appear like mime artists they are so lifelike.
Our weather report said it will feel like 105° to 110° this week, along with it came a list of cautions. Being out early morning or evening and plenty of water to stay hydrated.
It sounds like your strength has really improved.
Prayers and Good Luck for Friday.

@Barbara: It is very moving to stand there looking at them ... and doing so, I was thankful Mike didn't have to be over there, even tho' he was in the Navy at the time.
I didn't awaken until after sunrise, so will use the stationary bicycle several times today!
