Honor Roll: Villages of Kinderhook and Valatie, New York, War Memorials

In late September my husband and I spent two weeks in New York near Albany -- he for work and me, well, I played. One day as I was exploring the countryside about 30 minutes south of our hotel, I happened upon two war memorials in the Town of Kinderhook, which is comprised of the Village of Kinderhook and the Village of Valatie.

Village of Kinderhook War Memorial

The war memorial in the Village of Kinderhook is located at the intersection of Broad and Hudson Streets.

The morning sun played absolute havoc with my desire to get a view of the entire space so I used one from Wikipedia.

The war memorials in Valatie are across the street from Martin H. Glynn High School on Church Street. When I arrived, one of the village employees was edging and sweeping the park. He wouldn't let me take a any photographs until the park was spotless!
