The Bronze Fist of Daphne
Our road trip continues to Daphne, Alabama, for a look at a unique memorial to Veterans in the shape of a bronze fist holding an American flag.
The next stop on our meandering way home from Myrtle Beach was Daphne, Alabama. Our first stop: their Veterans Memorial.
Along the roadside in Daphne, there is an odd monument. Looking like a large bronze fist clutching an American flag, this monument looks a bit out of place. Dedicated May 11, 1993 by General Carl E. Mundy Jr. (according to the plaque), this is a tribute to those who died (aka “answered the long roll”) serving their country.
Sure, it’s a bit odd-looking, but we get the symbolism. While it wasn’t what we had come to Daphne to see, it was still a good chance for a photo (or several, in our case) before we headed to our next stop.
Check out the pics below, and stay tuned for what we really came to Daphne for (don’t worry, it’ll be worth the wait).
