Photo: Veterans Day Statue Rolling Down the Highway
You can imagine the surprise at seeing a flatbed tractor-trailer pulling a giant statue. Upon a second glance, it revealed itself to be a statue that recreates the famous photograph of a sailor kissing a nurse to celebrate the news of the end of World War II.
The photo below shows the sign that accompanies the statue and that references a website that explains it.
I should also commend my late father-in-law, a career naval officer, beginning with serving in the South Pacific during World War II, and my uncle, a career army officer and Vietnam veteran.
This week we are showing photos of the street cathedral and street scenes of Grenada, Nicaragua, posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site.
