  US 10th Mountain Division remembered in Bovec
by mtncorg
 
 

There is a memorial to the US 10th Mountain Division in the main square here in Bovec which remembers a post-WWII ski competition up on the slopes of the nearby Mangart. Having skied on the slopes in Colorado where the 10th Mountain Division had started from, it was fascinating to find myself where those men had ended their European tours while occupying the upper reaches of the Soča and that they were fondly remembered by the locals here.
