Arlington West Evolves into Costs of Wars
Twice monthly for about a decade, volunteers with Veterans for Peace installed thousands white crosses on the beach between Stearns Wharf and Santa Barbara Harbor, a poignant reminder of American lives lost during the Iraq War. The installation, known as Arlington West, paid homage to soldiers laid to rest at Washington, D.C.’s Arlington National Cemetery. “We did 10 years, then it seemed like nobody gave a damn anymore,” said Korean War veteran Ron Dexter, who’s been with the project since 2003. “So we took a year off and kicked around ideas about what people might respond to. We’re just trying to wake people up.”
