Arlington West, Santa Monica

Liz Lawley posted snapshots of Arlington West at the
Santa Monica beach

“When Simon and I got to the beach next to the Santa Monica Pier, we
found this temporary Iraq War Memorial, which is put up every Sunday by
volunteers. They post the photos and names of every US soldier killed in
Iraq, and encourage people to write one of the names on a piece of
paper, and use rubber bands to attach it to one of the crosses. They
also provide flowers for you to add to the cross. It was a powerful thing.”
