Marker/Plaque/Monument Monday

[Click on photos to enlarge the image]

Happy Labor Day!

Today's Plaque is located at the LST 325 display - docked on the Ohio River near Evansville's Waterworks Plant.
The photo below is of the LST 325 docked at Evansville, IN. During World War II many of these were built in Evansville.

The first thought was that this should be saved for Veterans Day or even Memorial Day, but decided that Labor Day is a good day to post this, since Evansville area men & women labored hard to build these war ships. The plaque itself honors those who served aboard these LST's... today we honor those who built the LST's, as well.
