In spite of living in Arizona for 27 years, I'd never visited Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza until a couple weeks ago. The plaza is essentially surrounded by state government buildings that house civil servants and not-so-civil elected lawmakers.
What I didn't realize until my visit, was the large collection of other memorials at this plaza.
In addition to all the military memorials (I've only shown a few,) there was a memorial to slain peace officers and a very large memorial to fire fighters.
It wasn't intentional, but the visit certainly got me thinking about Veteran's Day and all the people who have died in service to their country.
