Communist Expansion Is Challenged
The war to stop the expansion of Communism was fought in the jungles, mountains and rice paddies of South East Asia against an enemy that appeared friendly during the day only to be hostile at night. This memorial honors those American men and women that courageously fought for this just cause. It forever remembers those that lost their lives and those that are missing and may never return.
