The images I have posted are those of the Veteran’s Memorial in Palmerton, PA , the town where I attended high school. It is located in the park which is the central place in our small town and it commemorates all of the veterans from the Palmerton area. The names of those who served are listed on the granite slabs as well as on the pathway. There is a figure in the center that is of a gun and soldier’s helmet which brings the reality of war into the memorial. On this figure it is written “All gave some, Some gave all”. I think this really pulls the whole memorial together, making the viewers realize that this is a place to represent soldiers who fought for our freedom. There is also a gate surrounding the site that gives a sense of security and respect for the veterans being commemorated.
