Pittsburgh in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Vietnam Veterans Monument
On the ceiling of the canopy are wind chimes, signifying prayers for the dead each time they chime.
The configuration of the statues is symbolic of the welcome home that veterans have historically treasured.
The inscription, in Vietnamese and English, reflects the veterans' desire for peace-from war and within themselves.
This monument is offered as a daily reminder that our veterans, living and dead, are not and will not be forgotten.
Erected 1987 by Pittsburgh-Allegheny County Vietnam Veterans Committee.
