I had a chance to photograph the National World War I Memorial in Kansas City earlier this summer. While the memorial itself was powerful (particularly the museum built into the base of the monument), it was the ground in front of the memorial that moved me most. Following the sidewalk up to the memorial were several courtyards containing marble plaques honoring those who served in World War I. Seeing the names of these brave men put a human touch on a war that seems so distant now. I took (and have posted) many photos from this courtyard; unlike my previous images, this focuses on a handful of servicemen whose names are forever remembered.
Scenic Traverse Photography would like to thank all of our veterans for their service and dedication to keep America safe. Thanks vets!
