Happy Fourth of July, everyone.
This is a photo I took of LZ Peace, our local Vietnam Veteran's Memorial. I took it during a stroll through the park yesterday. It features a restored Huey that saw action in Vietnam. Northern Illinois has a very proud and active group of Vietnam veterans, many of whom I'm proud to call my friends. It took them many years to raise the money to make this memorial a reality, and, as you can see, it was well worth it.
If you look real hard you can see a pair of well worn combat boots placed just to the left of the wreath.
