Mission Accomplished

Last Saturday, I noticed a couple men removing 
the little squadron of fiberglass toy soldiers 
from their posts on Monument Circle.

As a truck pulling the troop's transport slowly drove around 
the monument, a sling was put under each soldier's arms, 
then he was lifted from his post on to the trailer.

Finally, they were carted away to home base, 
to be stored until just before Thanksgiving, 
when they will again be assigned special duty, 
bringing joy to visitors on the Circle 
during the Christmas season.

Not just soliders, but also sailors, as befitting "The Soldiers and Sailors Monument". I am sorry they do not leave the decorations up until the 12th day of Christmas, i.e. Epiphany.

It makes you wonder where they store them for the season...
