Martin Kondor, in Iraq in 2004.This garden should help bring solace to those who lost loved ones in the war and honor those sacrifices. To donate to the Peace Garden project, visit goldstargarden.com or mail contributions to Gold Star Garden, P.O. Box 3339, York, PA 17402. About $300,000 is still needed for the $750,000 project.
Wrapped in the stripes of the flag
Into infinity – the Great Beyond
The silver chord chasing
Becoming earth bound in red and white
The honor and the blood
Flowing ever thus from one increment of time
To the next nonexistent increment.
— Cherriney B.W. Kondor
