Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 4,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
I’m currently in my 22nd year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here
The motorhome is parked at the Paradise Casino in Yuma, Arizona. I was expecting to leave here recently, but I’ve changed my mind. I currently have reservations at Thousand Trails in Palm Desert, California, February 13th. Between now and then???? For the moment I remain in Yuma.
I just love the ability to change plans at a moments notice. As I tell everyone…All my plans are firmly etched in Jello!
Today’s subject: Armed Forces Park…
Since I’ve been coming to the Yuma area for a number of years during the Winter, I’ve explored the area pretty thoroughly. Rather than re-visit each place again, I’ve decided to show photos I’ve taken in the past. All these places are within about a one-hour drive from Yuma.
Today’s Blog was first posted in January, 2015.
Yuma, Arizona has a nice Armed Forces Park.
From the Chamber of Commerce website…
Yuma’s Armed Forces Park is located at the site of the old Yuma railroad depot.
The only park of its type in Arizona, one of the most unique features about the Armed Forces Park is that it has been designed to honor ALL military veterans, living and deceased, no matter which branch of service. To be honored with a plaque, a person needs only to have served in one of the military branches, whether current or years.
The plaques are made of solid granite. Each is eight inches high and 16 inches wide. Each plaque is individually engraved with the person’s name, rank, dates of service, and includes his or her service emblem. The proceeds from $125 per plaque sales will be used for park construction and future maintenance costs.

Enjoying 65-75 degree temperatures with low humidity most of the year is a primary joy in the RVing lifestyle!
