ebrpd On this #MemorialDay, we remember those who have fallen serving our country, including the 47 fallen graduates of the U.S. Maritime Service Officer's School in Alameda (1943-1954), honored at this monument near the Crab Cove Visitor Center. The current Visitor Center was the U.S. Maritime Service Officer's School "Red Cross Hall" for medical and dental needs. MD #history #merchantmarines #infirmary #monument #crabcove #alameda #ebrpd 2d

  •   roving_ranger @mark_o_ it took a crew of 4 staff 20 minutes to take this puppy down; one with a polaski, a couple of shovels and a hacksaw....you could also cut down their seed heads before they go to seed, but you'll have to do that every year 2mon
