Erie in Erie County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Erie County Vietnam Veterans Memorial
[Stand in the middle of the memorial:]
We brothers and sisters of the Vietnam War have constructed this remembrance to all of you, gentle heroes lost to war. Slip off your packs, set them down by the crooked trail, drop helmets along side, and shed those magazine-ladened bandoliers away from sweat soaked shirts. Lay those silent weapons down and march into the light of eternity... feel the soothing cool breeze right down to your soul. And rest forever in the shade of our love.
-Kenneth Kensill, Sgt. USMC
