Special Santa Barbara, California Memorial

Printer-friendly version


   The pictures are taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the pier. There is a veterans group that started putting a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan ...

    The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends. They put up this graveyard and take it down every weekend. Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep watch over it all night so nobody can mess with it. Every cross has the Name, Rank, D.O.B. and D.O.D. on it.

    It's very moving, very powerful so many young volunteers. So many 30 to 40 year olds as well.
