It was dedicated the same day our Transfer of Authority took place, I believe.
The statue itself is over eight feet tall.
The people here -- the ethnic Albanians, anyway -- just LOVE Americans, and really love him.
In fact, most of the locals here are so enamored of the U.S., that SPC C and I have driven through some small villages over here where there were more American flags flying than there would be in a comparable neighborhood in many American cities.
Blessings and peace to one and all,
Fr. Tim, SJ
