War Memorial, East St. Louis

Update: It turns out this monument was hit multiple times over the last twenty years, at least. It was moved into storage in June 2018; the grassroots effort to replace it with a new monument in nearby Jones Park was successful and the new monument was rededicated on May 25th, Memorial Day Weekend 2019.

I hadn’t been by Jones Park since July of 2008, and I stumbled across this interesting war memorial. I did not even realize that until I was editing photos at home, but it looks like it has been hit by a large truck. It is still standing for now.
