Have you seen this rugged looking fellow?

NOTE: This is a virtual geocache. There is no box to find, but you will learn about some important military events in American history. Keep your canteens full and your heads down!


Here are the rules to log this cache as found. Please read them carefully.

1. Use your GPS to find the cache location. Then look for the answers to the questions below. All the answers are right there waiting for you. If you haven't yet played a virtual geocache, this will be a good learning experience for a first-timer. Just get up and go!

Here are the six questions you must answer:

a) What is the title of the sculpture?
b) Which military events are commemorated here?
c) What period of years do they span?
d) Which military services are represented?
e) What organizations erected the monument?
f) What is the color and shape of the famous roof nearby?

2. Send your answers to all six cache questions to me through the geocaching.com emailer. Do NOT answer the questions in your log report. Let's keep them secret so others can enjoy the challenge, too.

3. Please wait until you receive a reply confirming that your answers are correct before submitting a log report. Be patient. Logs without confirmations will be deleted.

4. As always, we enjoy seeing photos of geocachers uploaded with logs. Just be careful that your photos don't give away the answers.

Hmm. Somehow I missed this was listed on Navicache. I know it's been archived, but Here's my old log from when it was active:
I've received permission to log from Anton. Found during down time at the annual Gus Macker outdoor basketball tourney, and I'm throwing together another downtown Buffalo virt while down there as well. Nice to see a tribute to the veterans of these little known campaigns so they'll never be forgotten. Of course when I typed that, I had NO IDEA that geocaching.com had a defacto ban on virtual caches. I've since listed my virt only here, and gpsgames.org

Really liked this area. Sat and waited for the trolley car to go by. E-mailed the info to Anton and got the ok to post. Thanks Anton for taking us to interesting spots in the center of NY cities.

Went to Erie, PA from Rochester, NY to drop off a few Travel Bug Entries for the First Annual Cannonball Run. Decided to take a break from the drive home. She had been here earlier this year...but forgot the shovel.
Thanks for the site and the info it contains.

Mr Mom, the Goo, and I decided to this cache after a late dinner. Got to the spot around 10PM and it was windy and frigid!! Still had fun gathering the information. Never stopped at this spot before although I had passed it many times. I'll have to go back and explore furhter when it warms up!!!

Thanks for the history lesson, Anton!!

A very interesting 'cache' indeed for history buffs. I almost turned into an icicle writing all the facts down today! Thanks for this 'urban jungle' hunt :)
