Maryhill Stonehenge

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

"In memory of the soldiers of Klickitat County who gave their lives in defense of their country. This monument is erected in the hope that others inspired by the example of their valor and their heroism may share in that love of liberty and burn with that fire of patriotism which death can alone quench."

These words are engraved on the memorial of the Maryhill Stonehenge located in Washington state. The memorial overlooks the Columbia River and that view is beautiful. As we are getting close to Memorial Day, I'm thinking of my late grandpa who served during the Vietnam War alongside US soldiers. I remember he would always wear his Vietnam cap wherever he went. Although he, along with other Hmong solders, did not get the treatment they deserved after the Vietnam war, they will always be remembered to me as heroes.
