Is it too early?

The people of Salem, Oregon have built and dedicated a memorial to the Afghan-Iraq war.

There seems to be some contention as to whether we should have a memorial to a war that isn't over yet. Either way, many veterans and their families showed up at the dedication.

Irregardless of whether this was an appropriate time for the memorial, the memorial itself looks wrong. The uniform being worn by the soldier in the memorial looks like something from Vietnam. Maybe it's just me. I would have thought they would have a soldier with bloused trousers and a flak helmet on.

Oh well, not my memorial, I guess. Just seems wrong.
