to perpetuate the memory and history of our dead

14.6 a New VFW Memorial

Pursuant to the fact that the numbers on the VFW memorial that was installed next to the Bridge in 1997 are now proven to be incorrect, it seems fitting that we attempt to update this data with a new memorial.

It is highly unlikely that we could ever get permission to place a second memorial near the Bridge. Nor would it seem fitting to do so. There is no reason to diminish the effort of our 1990s predecessors.

Therefore we have developed the idea of a second remembrance of these brave men in an entirely different format. In fact, that format was the impetus behind this website.

In the near future, we hope to be obtain permission to place 4 plaques next to benches. This plaques would contain the following statements:

Each displays the QR-code to access this website. In doing so, we hope to provide access to information about the US POWs to many other tourists who visit the CWGC cemeteries in KANCHANABURI.

This is a work in progress and this Section will be up dated as appropriate.
