Our Walk To Veteran's Memorial Park In Parma, Ohio

Veteran's Memorial Park Monument, Parma, Ohio

Flags for each branch of service: Army, Navy, Marines, State of Ohio, USA, POW-MIA, Coast Guard, Air Force, Merchant Marine

We want to give special honor to our service men and women in all the armed forces. At our local park, there is such a nice memorial with the flags of each service. This is the park where our dog, Abby, loves to walk to and often stops at this memorial.  Abby went to rest in the shade under the bench.  This was her second trip walking up here this day.
In the ground are four sections of bricks like this with names of servicemen and the war they served in etched into individual bricks:

Even as far back as the Civil War!

We say “Thank You” to all who served and those currently serving our nation in the armed forces. We appreciate your sacrifice!  Happy Memorial Day!

What a nice memorial. I don't blame Abby for visiting every chance she gets.
