Veterans Monument ,  Druding Park San Jacinto CA.

Just a small park in the city of San Jacinto, California that I wanted to try an experiment, and Present my flag. I found a very small yet very interesting little park dedicated to the veterans of San Jacinto. Druding Park even has a memorial to one of the town’s fallen Vietnam heroes, Joseph Patrick “Joey” Pink.

There is a memorial to all the services, Air Force has the B-17 Propeller, USMC has the Globe and Anchor, US Navy has an Anchor from the USS Cleveland LPD-7, US Coast Guard has a Light House and of Course the US Army has its tank.

Two special Memorials include the Bell from the SS Cape Johnson, and a Marker and Flags for the POW-MIA.

Of Course being of Inquisitive mind   a couple of Questions arose

  1. Why the USS Cleveland and what is tie in with San Jacinto?
  2. Wasn’t there a USS San Jacinto ?
  3. Why the B17 Prop and what is tie in with San Jacinto?
  4. Why the SS Cape Johnston and what is tie in with San Jacinto?
  5. Why the Tank and what is tie in with San Jacinto?
  6. There seemed to be some question has what kind of tank it is?

I will leave these questions for my listeners to help me solve.

A Special Shout out to Allan Stringer who went with me on this little adventure
