Kenner in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana — The American South (West South Central)
Vietnam War U.S. Marine Corps
Proportionately, more Marines died in battle than any other service. This is attributed principally to the fact that Marines actively pursued the enemy by focusing on small unit counter-guerilla tactics with the aid of close air support.
Some of the bloodiest and most important battles of the war were fought and won by Marines: the siege of Khe Sanh, the house to house battle for Hue City and Phu Bai, and intense enemy engagements in Quang Tri province to include Dai-Do along the northern DMZ.
We proudly honor those who served in our beloved Corps in this country's time of need.
Donated by a deeply appreciative former Marine.
Erected 1997 by Patrick F. Taylor.
