Glasgow in Barren County, Kentucky — The American South (East South Central)
Barren County Viet Nam Memorial
This memorial has been placed here as a reminder of the heroism and self-sacrifice of those Barren Countians who answered their country’s call during the Viet Nam Conflict.
They did their duty in a trying and difficult time. Some made the supreme sacrifice; others will carry the scars of battle to their graves. Wherever they served they brought honor to their countrymen. May this marker inspire future generations to follow their example.
