Enduring Freedom




Today is Memorial Day in the United States, a day when we remember and honor people who have died while serving the nation in the armed forces.

I thought this memorial located in the park in front of the Arizona State Capitol was perfect for this day.

It's called the Enduring Freedom Memorial.















  It's dedicated in honor of our men and women from  Arizona serving in the armed forces who lost their lives fighting terrorism.

It also symbolizes the gratitude and respect for those who continue to protect our nation's freedom in the global war on terrorism.
