This monument has been vandalized over the years but has always been repaired and restored by the good people of Rosedale, Queens.
The current caretakers are the volunteers of the Cornucopia Society. The monument is not only meant to honor those Rosedale residents that served, but all those who served the United States during the Vietnam War. The Cornucopia Society considers this a great honor to maintain and clean the surrounding park area around this monument as a public service.
The monument is believed to be the second monument to honor Vietnam Vets in the United States snd the first one in New York to honor them. God Bless America!
