Military Medallions

The graves of military veterans are often marked by a medallion designating in which conflict and sometimes in which capacity the veteran served. These medallions are just a few inches in diameter and are attached to a metal rod that is stuck into the ground. They come in a wide variety of designs, perhaps because they are created by and placed by different veteranís organizations. Because of this variety, it is fun to make a collection of photos of these medallions and keep on the hunt for a unique one that would add to the collection.
