Picture Postcard: Red Bank War Memorial Statue

12 Sep

September 12, 2013

These were taken in Red Bank New Jersey. This statue was erected after World War One, and then amended for every war thereafter. (The World War Two plaque is around the corner on the right side.) It lists every local soldier who died in a war.

Let’s hope there don’t have to be any more additions.

    Let’s hope indeed… every time I see something like this I think that maybe among the dead soldiers there could have been the person who would have discovered the cure for cancer, or helped hundreds of people in need, or become a just president, or… been just a person who would have lived a happy and full life.
    What a horrible, horrible waste. Man is really made of 2% possibilities and 98% stupidity.

      I tend to think that it is the other way around, but the 2% stupidity always seems to win.
