war memorials often have drinking fountains below the list of fallen or serving soldiers i believe this to be user friendly. it provides a drink while the person bows their head for a sip in respect to the names. have a look at bert flugelman's artwork, he is an australian artist whostudied at the university of wollongong, he has a lot of public art in australia, namely his artwork in martin place {sydney} which was quite controversial. a war memorial is simply a tombstone that you can visit anywhere around the world to commemmorate any soldier or person involved in te war.
