Article about: When you enlarge the pics you'll see some writings on the bridge saying: U.S.R.S. What does it mean? US Reclamation Service ?

    Default Weird Bridge in my home

    Hello there i am not sure where to post this but i live in Yuma Arizona and there is this bridge out side of town, I am about 99.9999999 % sure this has no ties to Nazi Germany but i really just wanted to know what this bride means if any one knows. It is right next to a big military base called YPG (yuma proving grounds). But i would just really like some answers and it was a little weird so i wanted to show you guys these photos. Any info will help so comment away.

    The Cocopah Indian Tribe is native to the Yuma area and a static swastika is/was a native American symbol. This may have something to do with the foot bridge being there.

    True but the cocopah indians had the swastika backwords. The way it is was the way the germans displayed it in ww2.

    Agreed. The swastika was a popular native american symbol, which was the origin of 45th US Infantry Division patch:

    In 1938 they replaced it with another native american symbol, the 'thunderbird'.

    Could it have something to do with the 45th Infantry Division?
