"The Big Guns: Memorial to War Heros" Illahee State Park Off The Beaten Path Tip by glabah

  Big Guns guard Entrance to Illahee State Park
by glabah

As nearby Bremerton has a long history as a Navy shipyard, naturally there are any number of Navy heros that can be memorialized in their nearby state park.

At the entrance to the park there are two reasonably good sized anti-aircraft guns that are from one of the ships, and a small memorial picnic area by the guns.

The plaque is a generic statement "This memorial is dedicated in grateful recognition of the sacrifices made by the American People for the preservation of their heritage of justice and freedom."
