Very odd place for that.

Quote:Military.Com, comment thread states
"This is a South East Asia memorial,"A Soldier Stone". The memorial was a dream of A LTC in Colorado Springs in the early 90's. He applied for and received permission from the Forest Service for the work. Unfortunately he developed cancer and died before the project was finished, however the 52nd Engineer Battalion at Fort Carson provided volunteers to transport and erect the stones. It is a memorial to all soldiers who fought in all the wars of SE Asia. I have hunted elk in this meadow for the last 35 years. Motor vehicles are not allowed in the meadow, off the trail. This is Sergeants Mesa, more easily accessed from Hwy 114 on EE38. If you stop at the Forest Service in Sagauche, they will provide you with a hand-out, however, it is not advertised. Steve Owen USMC/USA Calhan, CO "

"Update to my previous post. I just located my copy of the SoldierStone brochure from the Rio Grande forest service office. It was the dream of LTC Stuart A.Beckley. It was a"Tribute to our Forgotten Allies. It was installed by men from the 10th Special Forces, at Fort Carson, and others, and not by the 52nd Eng. Bn. as I earlier stated. Ltc. Beckley did not get to visit the site but was able see photos of the memorial before he passed. It was his wish not to broadly advertise the location, but to make it available upon request. For anyone wishing to visit the site, lease park at the edge of the tree line and approach on foot. It is only about 400 yards. Please be reverent,this is a very special place, and while I can't prove it, I am sure there are ashes of VietVets on the ground. SO, Calhan, CO "

Maybe someones father or brother is still missing in action or was killed during the vietnam war and this was probably the only sticksville location where they were allowed to erect this memorial without first being forced to cut through miles of political red tape and without first being forced to cash line the pockets of certain two faced back stabbing legalized gangster politicians...

@ 5.24 Luke 19:40

When the Pharisees objected to the crowds’ hailing Jesus as “the One coming as the King in" God’s name, he said: “I tell you, If these remained silent, the stones would cry out.” (Luke 19:38-40)

If the word for 'stone' is being used in a figurative way ... then perhaps it applies to the 'everyday people', perhaps the people of the land - dirt - 'stones'.

Quote:Likewise, if God’s people today were to fail in exposing the wickedness that exists in this world, ‘out of the wall a stone itself would cry out plaintively.’ (Habakkuk 2:11)

On the Alumni Forum for my high school

one member answer the question " what was your greatest fear in high school "

with : " Going to Nam "

Odd . I knew well that I would not go .

we all have the choice , whether to succumb to extortion ,

or kick it's ass .

as i said then : " when the draft board sends someone to arrest me
for refusing to be drafted ,,,

it is then I will take up my gun and fight ,,, right here on this soil "

The War in Nam , was a business venture

The price was the blood of innocence

shed for profits to line pockets .

Mans failure to think indeed .

and mans failure to revolt against the extortionist .
