[Honor Roll of Names on Black Granite]

April 15, 1995

This UH-1H "Huey" helicopter was donated by Department of the Army and Kansas Army National Guard to Girard Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 7479 through the efforts of All American Post Commander Larry R. Salzman and members of All American V.F.W. Post 7479. We give sincere appreciation to Crawford County Commissioners Pat Barone, Anthony Pichler, Earl McColm, and the Citizens of Crawford County for the site of this memorial and to Mayor Jerry Staton, the City of Girard, and all those benefactors that made the Vietnam "Moving Wall" Memorial, April 13 - April 19, 1994, a continuous success with this dedication and future site of the Kansas Vietnam War Memorial.
