This week, Steve and Dave take a walk down the path of memorials and tributes. A National Memorial is a designation in the United States for a protected area that memorializes a historic person or event. Surprisingly, there are only 28 national memorials that are owned and administered by the National Park Service. We start with a look into some of the newest memorials in the US, Flight 93 or MLK Jr. We finish with the breathtaking memorial dedicated to those who fought in the Vietnam War. Tributes are quite a bit different in respect to memorials. Tributes are personal deliveries from one person to another, out of life-long respect and honor. Which tributes stand out in your minds? We reflect on some of ours in the episode. We hope you enjoy the trip down memorial lane with us this week.
