Visiting Five World War I Monuments/Memorials On Veterans Day 2014

Today I visited five World War I Monuments/Memorials in honor of Veterans Day ... the first Veterans Day during the World War I Centennial.  The cities were Oaklyn, Collingswood, Lindenwold, Monroe Township and Gloucester Township.  The plaque for the one in Lindenwold was removed because the building is, by all appearances, vacant.  I imagine the group that moved took the plaque with them.  I got lost trying to find the memorial in Gloucester Township.  I was driving aimlessly and when I was at a red light, I looked to my right and there was the memorial in Monroe Township.  Totally unplanned, totally unscripted, very unexpected ... I went with the opportunity.  I definitely took the good with the bad today.  A driver in Gloucester Township gave me a beep of support at 4:41 in the video.
