2. POW-MIA Monument
The monument is a little unusual in that it applies to prisoners of war and those missing in action in all wars, not just Vietnam. The artwork on it, however, is the POW-MIA symbol made recognizable after Vietnam.

Memorial Park runs along the west side of US 81 in the middle of Duncan for 7-8 blocks. It contains monuments and memorials of all types, not just those honoring veterans. There are monuments honoring historical events, places, and people unrelated to the military.
