VFW Post 278

Continuing the patriotic murals theme from a few weeks ago, the Veterans of Foreign Wars building in Pittsburgh's Bloomfield neighborhood (on Liberty, opposite the Bloomfield Bridge) is painted with all manner of military scenes, from a sailor coming home to the flag raising at Iwo Jima.

One of the most arresting parts of the mural is the picture of the three soldiers staring into the distance.  It's probably based on the Three Soldiers Statue that stands near the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, but unlike the statue, the men in the mural appear much more haunted by the things they've seen.

Sorry there's so much extra stuff (cars, posts, poles) in the pictures.  This building borders a busy supermarket parking lot.  And as always, click on the pics for larger versions.
