Nope, I did not try to eat any, but I did ask. Amazingly, they really smell like chocolate!

Thanks for posting. It's a small park on a busy street. A lot of people never notice it.

First time I've come across a forces' memorial in the US that's been vandalised (not that uncommon in the UK), the plaque was still missing when I was there a couple of weeks ago.

Albuquerque International Sunport. I can't recall being at another US airport where the POW/MIA flag is on display inside the airport buildings. Is there a particular reason for ABQ having it or is it NM being a step ahead of everyone else?

I've seen the POW/MIA flag at my local hospital (Not a VA hospital).

The "Percent of Veteran Population under 25 Years old" 0.8% to 0.9% is slightly below the U.S. average of 0.9%. http://www.va.gov/vetdata/docs/Quick..._Slideshow.pdf

So, I don't know the full answer. Eight houses on my street and five of them display flags at various times...
