Honoring our veterans with memorials is an important part of every culture. They allow people to remember a deceased loved one or an important public figure. Many offer a resting place for the deceased. Survivors also get a place where they can go and pay their respects. Each are designed to convey powerful messages about the events or individuals they commemorate, and each has embedded in it a particular perspective, an interpretation, a set of values or judgments.
