Memorial Day Reflections

Here in Utah originally created as a city park in 1902, Memory Grove Park was dedicated in 1924 as a memorial for America’s soldiers and contains several other monuments in addition to The Pagoda. On August 11, 1999 a tornado passed through Memory Grove Park resulting in the destruction of over 400 old trees. No monuments were damaged.

From the Library of Congress, Walter Reed Memorial Hospital, Gold Star Mothers, DAR, Veteran Parks, to school children planting a tree in remembrance of animals killed in the Great War, trees as memorials are growing across America.

Check out the National Memorial Tree Register “Let us remember”, American’s living monuments, Great War Memorial Trees and the men and women in whose memory they are planted. #memorialday #treeutah#trees #community #worldwars #inmemory
