This is the Veterans Memorial close to downtown San Jose, California. The 76 white flags is of a neutral color to pay tribute to soldiers of all wars. The panels is of pictures of local soldiers and their letters back home.

Oh my, this is really touching. I'm most taken by the ghost of the men behind their letters.
