Venango County Vietnam Veterans Honor Roll
All Gave Some - Some Gave All
— "Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another." —
All Vietnam Veterans
This memorial was erected in memory of the young individuals who went to war as kids and lost their youthful dreams, and some their lives, for a cause-freedom and honor-and came back as men with their horrors of war instilled in every fiber of their being and were never given the respect and honor they so dearly deserved from the public or United States government.
God will one day judge their actions. Until then, He will shine on the lives of each veteran now and forever more because He was with each of them in Vietnam. He is the only One that truly knows what they went through and are living with every day.
