1. Armor in Vietnam Marker
Inscription.  The equipment displayed here and the men who fought it represent the first time in the history of the U.S. Army that mounted operations played a significant role in unconventional warfare from March 1965 to January 1973, Armor, Armored Cavalry, and Air Cavalry units aggressively sought out the enemy in all types of terrain and weather conditions in the Republic of Vietnam, contributing immeasurably to the overall efforts of the U.S. forces there. This monument stands in recognition of those men who served there and as an inspiration to those who may follow.
