ARLINGTON WEST

Santa Barbara, CA

 

Each Sunday, the Santa Barbara Chapter of the Veterans For Peace is on the beach in front of well-known Stearns Wharf all day, interacting with the many tourists from all over the world through a project now called "Arlington West."  Arlington West consists of a small white cross for every soldier killed in Iraq.

1,000 Is Just a Number, Till You See the Crosses

 

Ken's Aunt Cathy Patton and Karen traveled to Santa Barbara for Veteran's Day weekend 2004.

The Veterans for Peace in Santa Barbara are such warm and caring people.

They honor the soldiers every Sunday with this memorial. 

If you find yourself in Santa Barbara, go visit Ken's cross- they will show you the way!
