Iwo Jima Memorial, Wakeeney – Kansas Tuesdays November 12, 2019

As I continue my westward trek across Kansas this week, I started moving south as I zigzag through the state. I saw Wakeeney in Trego County and went looking for what’s to see or do in the area. I came across the Iwo Jima Memorial – https://www.wakeeney.org/iwo-jima-memorial. It was originally placed at the future spot of KANSAS VETERANS’ CEMETERY: https://www.wakeeney.org/kansas-veterans-cemetery.
