—Honoring Clark, Darke, Greene, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, Warren Counties —
“This is a living memorial…today is a celebration
of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. No
statues of war torn soldiers with pointed firearms
will guard this park. For the Viet Nam Veteran
has chosen not to remind America of war and
turmoil, but to further the dreams of peace
