1. Barren County Viet Nam Memorial
Inscription.
Viet Nam

This memorial has been placed here as a reminder of the heroism and self-sacrifice of those Barren Countians who answered their country’s call during the Viet Nam Conflict.

They did their duty in a trying and difficult time. Some made the supreme sacrifice; others will carry the scars of battle to their graves. Wherever they served they brought honor to their countrymen. May this marker inspire future generations to follow their example.

Veteran’s Day, November 11, 1982
