Description   EN   

My maternal grandfather served in the US Army in WWII. My paternal grandfather served in the US Army in Korea. My father served in the US Army during Vietnam. My good friend from High School served in the US Army during Desert Storm, and my Nephew is serving right now in Kuwait. My family understands the respect required of all those who serve our country. 

About the cache...The coordinates will have you standing at the Eternal Flame in Veteran's Park. You should be facing the seal of the US Army. This is your starting point. You will browse the names listed on this memorial. You are looking for a man named Gregory. Gregory's other name will be your passcode to log this cache. 

 

Find a seat nearby on a bench, log your cache and remember what is represented here. Our Freedom. 

 

Why Gregory? This is in memory of my father, who is interred in Indiana.

Out enjoying Veterans Park with Micah_lee.  This is a great tribute with a long history.  This beautiful monument is quite different from the original wooden one in the 1940s, not that I remember it but from reading about it.  I always enjoy spending time here.  TFTC

I found a Gregory, but apparently the WRONG one!

 

The password didn't work. 

 

OCNA was down when I tried to log, so I didn't look for more assuming I had it rigth the first time.


Oh well!
