The photohunters theme this week is Veterans/Military. At the NC State Capitol (Raleigh) on Union Square is a Vietnam Veterans' Memorial titled "After the Firefight" by Abbe Godwin. There was some kind of event taking place when I took the shot below, and there are people around it. You can click inside any of the following photographs for enlargements.
Another time I took a shot of the same memorial from the back which is pictured below. "The monument depicts two soldiers carrying a wounded comrade". Another memorial at the NC Capitol on Union Square is the North Carolina Veterans' Memorial which was designed by Richard Armlung. That monument honors NC Veterans who served in World War I, World War II, and the Korean War. The base features major battles from each of the wars and Lady Liberty is atop "holding a palm front to symbolize peace and victory".These photographs are all from my archives and taken at different times of the year which is why some have a lot of folliage and some bare trees. To find other photohunters, please visit the photohunt home where participants post starting on Saturday.
