A photo of the 1st BCT’s new memorial, commemorating the brigade’s soldiers killed in action during OIF. It was unceremoniously installed yesterday, just as the snow began to fall. I expect it will be formally dedicated in the spring, when the weather isn’t so crappy.
I find it a little curious, though, that there is no other inscription – nothing to even indicate what conflict or theater in which these men and women died. What will people think of this monument, a hundred years from now?
