On August 20, 1986, disgruntled USPS letter carrier Patrick Sherrill entered the Edmond Post Office armed with three semiautomatic pistols and ammunition. He shot his supervisor to death and tracked his co-workers through the building, killing fourteen and wounding six before killing himself. Unfortunately, this tragic crime is the incident which coined the term "going postal". The coordinates take you to a beautiful memorial/fountain that has a plaque dedicated to each of the victims of this massacre.

Only one log per location per person (meaning multiple visits -> multiple logged visits -> OK!). You should log your own waymarked fountains as well. After all, you did in fact visit the area to which you marked to way.
Even if an individual waymark owner has a requirement indicating a photo is required, it is not. If there is any dispute, contact the category management group for clarification.
