German POWs buried in Seattle

I found that 4 German and 1 Italian POW are buried in the Seattle area at 2 different locations. I took some photos at one location and did some research for weltkriegsopfer.de. Is this information you would like to have?

Re: KO'd tanks used as strong points

Related to this topic, I am aware of WWII German tanks used as strong points in Syrian bunkers on the Golan Heights captured by Israel during the Six Day War in 1967.
