I finally got to see the post-restoration statue in daylight on Sunday and there is such a difference.  There is now a distinct difference between the color of the uniforms and the skin color of each of the men.   I really like it and did not expect this change.  Now people are wondering whether they will do the Women's Memorial the same way, I wouldn't mind.

TSNA made a donation to the restoration funding so we are seeing the results of our donation.

As you can see from the picture some of the men were very creative at making their tent a thing of beauty.
