"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends!
made by the men and women who
served their country during the Vietnam War,
and the families at home,
who waited for their return.
We will remember.
We will reflect.
We will let the healing,
though long overdue, begin.
To all Veterans we say,
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SACRIFICE.
This was a difficult period in American history. Many who served their country did so not by choice, but were drafted. Many encountered controversy, shame, and anger when they returned home.
It is hoped that this monument will be a reminder that those who served in the military during this time (and after) are no different than those who came before them.
DESERVE OUR RESPECT
Erected 2019 by The Joint Veterans Council of Washington County.
