Photos by Robert J. Mondore in Alexandria Bay, NY

On Memorial Day we remember our fallen warriors who protected our nation and freedoms.

 Above is a memorial located in Alexandria Bay, NY overlooking the St. Lawrence River and Boldt Castle on Heart Island. (Please click on the photos to see them larger.) The memorial is a testament to PFC Jack T. Sweet, a soldier who gave his life on Feb. 8, 2008 in Iraq at the age of 19 during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Jack Sweet was from Alexandria Bay and his home base was Fort Drum in Watertown, NY (10th Mountain Division).

To all who have served, thank you!
