The Buffalo Riverwalk

On Friday, November 10, I decided to take a walk down Buffalo's Riverwalk. It was a bright, clear day, a good day to be outside, experiencing nature and exploring the edges of the city.
I started my walk at the marina in downtown Buffalo. In the marina, there are retired battleships and monuments to servicemen and women from a long series of wars that the United States has fought. The monument that I photographed was for a conflict that technically never ended, even though hostilities were over in the early 1950s. The Korean war claimed hundreds of thousands of casualties... killed in action, wounded, missing in action, captured...
The United States never declared war. Instead, the conflict was termed a "police action."
