This post is a tribute to the men and women who fought, served, and lost their lives in WWII. This memorial is one of many at the park.

Very strong quote from Winston Churchill. This attitude is what helped the allies to win the war.

Close up view of the statues representing the soldiers of WWII. I love how people have decorated with American flags.

This is a bench dedicated to the first local to die in the war at age 17. Nowadays it is hard to imagine these sacrifices which is why we cannot forget their contribution.

Pensacola-Memorial-Park-WWII – Submarine Lifeguard League Memorial

This one was interesting. I never knew that there was a Submarine Lifeguard League. The history about saving George H.W. Bush was part of their story.

 

This is a very well done memorial park. It has much more than the WWII memorial which we will touch on in a separate post.
