This memorial stone is in Capitol Park in front of the statehouse in downtown Boise - to honor the Idahoans who lost their lives during Operation Desert Storm, 1990. Obviously, the stone has been neglected. It could use a cleaning and there's just a dead plant in the permanent vase. I took this picture over Memorial Day weekend, and was surprised nothing new had been put in the vase. Part of the reason could be that getting to the memorial isn't easy because of the massive construction going on at the Capitol across the street.
