Signs, Signs

Saw this sign on the side of a building in Eureka, California. Who knows how long this sign has been hanging there.



  1. This sign could have been there since the Vietnam era.

  2. Wow! I wonder the same thing...maybe Vietnam war related...

  3. I still see bumper stickers with that message....sad to think of.

  4. I see flags with that image flying frequently around here but have never seen it painted on a building before.


  5. From the comments, I now know the meaning of the sign. The silhouette style graphics are quite dramatic.

  6. We have signs like that in NC for POWs from the 60s and 70s that never came home and have never been clearly identified as having died. The organization for them still have meetings and periodically have events to honor POW family members never accounted for.

    I popped back to answer your question about snow where I live. I live in central NC and the most snow in one snowfall we ever got in my lifetime was 18 -21 inches around 2000 or maybe 2001. This year we didn't come close to that kind of a snow. Some years no snow, some years several times a year and some quite a bit more than that. People that move here during a few years in a row of no snow think we don't get snow and are shocked when we have it but it's actually unusual to go years without snow (that happen a few years back). I'm sure more than you needed to know but I've lived here for 56 years (born here) and as a child our Christmas sleds usually got some good use as did my daughters when she grew up but we have had a dry spell sometimes. The NC coast rarely gets snow. The NC mountains (especially northern range) usually get a fair amount.


Would love to hear what you think.
