1. Vietnam War Memorial
Inscription.

These doors turning with the wind, once flew in Vietnam. They now host the names & towns of those from Mason City and surrounding counties who died in in [sic] an ungrateful war. You've never really died if you are remembered. These names will be remembered Forever.

A Bleeding Flag.
A Bleeding Country.
A Bleeding Soldier.
How much blood needs to
be lost by a Nation
before they get it right?

You've never lived until you've almost
died, for those who fight for it.
Life has a flavor the protected
will never know.

We give you our Deaths.
We ask you to give them meaning.
