Here are some snapshots I made while stationed on Parris Island. Recently I re-visited the island and saw the same monuments, unaltered. I suspect no one at the station now knows the background of the incidents "memorialized." I thought you might publish them with the possibility of some readers advancing some information, in addition to the brief inscriptions. I am in the habit of noting memorials where I travel and generally want more information than the shafts themselves furnish.
