Nice to visit and just be still, paying tribute to all those who served, very nice eternal flame. Take pause and be thankful to those who returned and to those who did'nt. Freedom is not free.

This is one of the best Vietnam Memorials that I have had the opportunity to visit. It is well kept, quiet, clean and well thought out. There is also a park adjacent to the memorial for little people to occupy their time.

This is a nice memorial to our soldiers. You can view all of the sights in about 15 minutes, there is plenty of parking and a park next door for a picnic and a place for your children to play.

Just a small memorial to the Vietnam War veterans. Made to look like a helicopter is coming into a rice paddy to pick up troops on the ground.

This is a stop that is well worth the time for all Americans. It pays homage to the West Texas heroes that paid the ultimate sacrifice during the Vietnam War. Their names and the counties they are from are inscribed on a monument. The park...More
