This is the Buzz Bomb on the Courthouse Square in Putnam County, Indiana. It is the only V-1 on display in the U.S. It was used by the Germans in WWII to terrorize London. The plaque at the bottom calls it the first cruise missile.

Next, is the Doughboy, He's a WW I memorial. I adored this guy when I was a young child and would even ask my parents to drive by when we were going someplace and our route wasn't taking us past here unless I asked. I remember asking my dad "who is that?" and his reply was " that is an American Hero son - he is no one single soldier really, he is all of those selfless enough to give there all for the rest of us. And he deserves our respect."

He still gets mine and I still go out of my way to drive by and look at him :)
