Park County War Memorial, Cody Wyoming

This is the original war memorial in Cody Wyoming.  I'm uncertain of the dedication date, but it's apparently an all wars memorial. The statute in the foreground of William F. Cody was added later.

Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

These photos are of the city block that is now a memorial to those who lost their lives in the tragic and senseless bombing of the Murrah Federal Office Building in Oklahoma City.  It's a powerful, and moving, memorial.

The view from the memorial, looking at Oklahoma City U.S. Federal Building and Courthouse, with the steeple of St. Joseph's Old Cathedral visible to the right.

A panoramic photograph of the reflection pool, with memorials to each of those who lost their lives in the attack.
