West Point

War memorials here.

A splendid gray place on a splendid gray day

Students fresh from discussing John Patrick's"Teahouse of the August Moon" (1953 play, based on a 1951 novel by Vern J. Sneider; filmed in 1956).

War memorials. I did not see memorials for World War I or World War II here, but West Point is full of memorials, many from the American Revolution or Civil War. This one is the best

These two standing for many thousands.
