Vietnam War Memorial
These doors turning with the wind, once flew in Vietnam. They now host the names & towns of those from Mason City and surrounding counties who died in in an ungrateful war. You've never really died if you are remembered. These names will be remembered Forever.
A Bleeding Flag.
A Bleeding Country.
A Bleeding Soldier.
How much blood needs to
be lost by a Nation
before they get it right?
You've never lived until you've almost
died, for those who fight for it.
Life has a flavor the protected
will never know.
We give you our Deaths.
We ask you to give them meaning.
