“This is the day we pay homage to all those who didn’t come home. This is not Veterans Day, it’s not a celebration, it is a day of solemn contemplation over the cost of freedom.” – Tamara McAnally Bolton (Author, Photographer, and Travel Addict)
With profound gratitude and in loving memory of the brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice; may their memories be eternal.
We shot this pic in Jacksonville’s Memorial Park which honors the more than 1,600 Florida men and women who lost their lives serving our country during World War I. Memorial Park is located along the banks of the St. Johns River and if you decide to make your way here to pay tribute to those we have lost, head to 1620 Riverside Avenue, Jacksonville, 32204.
