Huntington in Huntington County, Indiana — The American Midwest (Great Lakes)
In Memory of All Vietnam Veterans
This monument was established to honor the millions of Americans who served in the Vietnam War. The statue depicts the likeness of HM1 Thomas A. Parker, a Huntington native and Navy Corpsman who was killed in action, and whose body was never recovered.
Any person who has participated in war has lost a piece of themselves on the battlefield – physical, psychological, emotional, or spiritual. Although this statue is of one man, it represents all our veterans and that which was lost to war.
To all who served, and to the families, friends, and country who will always mourn those who were lost, may God grant you peace.
