What a Statue.


I just saw a picture of the Statue Of Liberty and was so impressed..This is at Camp Dodge and made with
18,000 soldiers.. Thought you would all like to see it..
With the 4th of July coming, gives you thoughts of what this country is really all about and how thankful we should be..
I remember my grandmother saying how thrilled she was passing the real thing on her way to Ellis Island, from Poland..she was only 16 at the time and never saw her family again. She spoke Russian/Polish/English..and always told me, that there was no greater place than America..
and don't I know it..God Bless America..





Till next time, keep looking up..

Oh wow!!! I love seeing images made with people, I've seen a lot of amazing ones, but I think this one wins, especially as it's soldiers, not just random people!

what a great photo. I always imagine my ancestors coming to ellis island from germany so long ago and seeing the statue and feeling the thrill.

Awesome picture! And your grandmother was absolutely right, there is no greater place than America. (I may be a little bias) :)

Beautiful picture. Thanks for posting it. And something else about your relative! Did they make 16 year olds stronger back then, or is it just my imagination?
