      There is a memorial park just down the street from our house for the 17 young men from Tasmania who died during the Vietnam war. None of them was older than 25 years old.

      Took these photos today.

      Memorial stone for each serviceman who died.

      Plaques on two of the memorial stones.

      We have a Soldiers Walk on the Domain in Hobart - about 550 cedar and cypress trees planted over several kms between the Aquatic Centre and the Botanic Gardens - each one with a plaque containing details of a local soldier who died in WW1. There are several trees/plaques directly outside the front door of the Aquatic Centre and I think about those young fellers a couple of times a week as I'm leaving the pool.

      We went to Legerwood when we were in Tasmania, thought the carved memorial trees were fantastic.
