Specific Wars Monuments and Memorials
Managed By: Icon Here WarVeterans
Description:
This category is for monuments and memorials dedicated to specific wars, typically to honor the persons (as a whole, not as individuals) who fought in such conflicts. Exclusions made for wars which memorials and monuments already have their own categories.
Expanded Description:

The objective of this category is to waymark memorials or monuments dedicated to specific wars and their veterans.

With this category it's possible to waymark places of the same kind dedicated to specific conflicts. Some examples:

  • Monuments or memorials dedicated to the Portuguese soldiers who fought in Angola, Mozambique and Guinea-Bissau during the Colonial War (1961-1975)
  • Monuments or memorials dedicated to the French soldiers who fought in Algeria and Indochina after the Second World War
  • Monuments or memorials dedicated to the men from all the countries which were once part of Soviet Union who fought in Afghanistan.

EXCLUSIONS

The following wars have their own categories for memorials and monuments, therefore no acceptance in the current category.

Also because there are already categories for those, no memorials or monuments dedicated to specific units or soldiers will be accepted. Finally, for the same reasons, we can't accept submissions of memorials or monuments dedicated to multi-wars.

Restrictions from 25th July:

  • Individual persons (heroes, leaders, etc) won't have place here, as there are already a few categories for such waymarks.
  • Monuments and memorials to specific battles are excluded IF they are on the location of the actual battle. There is a category for Battlefields where they fit perfectly.

Instructions for Posting a Specific Wars Monuments and Memorials Waymark:
1) Naming: Name of the monument or memorial, name of the war, city, state, country.

2) Accurate coordinates.

3) At least on picture of the monument or memorial. Additional images will be welcome, specially any showing a plate or sign.
