In the Outer Richmond, just down from the Veterans Hospital on 44th Avenue and Clement, there's a makeshift veterans memorial the doubles as a cat sanctuary. A guy who lives either nearby or in the blue truck that is always parked near it crude memorial cares for the tiny plot of land and several stray cats who rely on the food, water, and shelter that sits next to the bevy of angel and lion statures, flags, potted flowers, and Iwo Jima painting.

Here are a few shots of the memorial in honor of Veterans Day.

You can check out the memorial yourself at 44th and Clement, just off the 38-Geary line before the bus ends, right before Seal Rock Drive.
