Memorial Day 2010

As Memorial Day approached, I tried to think of something I haven't photographed before.  That's when I settled on the memorial at the entrance to Davis Trail at Nay Aug Park in Scranton.  There's a steel plate dedicated to Scranton area soldiers who've recently died in action.
It's an interesting memorial, unique in the Scranton area.  It's tough to find.  You really have to look for it.  If you enter the park at the top of Mulberry Street, it's off to the right.  Just follow the sign to Davis Trail.  It's on the CMC side of the park.

Nay Aug Park is full of interesting monuments, including this one, near the Mulberry Street entrance.

As I've noted before, Memorial Day is one of the most challenging observances of the year when it comes to television news.  Every little town has a ceremony.  We get to many.  We can't get to them all.  Unfortunately, that often prompts some hard feelings.  Believe, me, we look at every e-mail that comes in.  We listen to every telephone call.  All the observances are on a list.  We cover as many as we can.  If we don't make it to your town this year, it doesn't mean we don't care.  On the contrary.  All those small town observances is what makes our area special.

Please, remember what the day is all about.
