Hi Buckles

Although the official Memorial Day is May 30th

we will celebrate it the 28th as the last Monday in May

And although this photo is from VJ Day (August 14th)

I thought it might also be appropriate for this day

The 27 ft statue of this image which had been donated

by a local Sarasota veteran was recently damaged

by a car wreck at the downtown waterfront location

on "The Trail" near Marina Jack & is currently back

up in the New Jersey studio of the sculptor being

repaired & to be returned before this August 14th

Happy Memorial (Decoration) Day to all
