A moving replica to a generation of brave, unsung heroes in a controversial conflict, but the Permian Basin pays homage.

I thought this was an excellent Memorial to Vietnam Veterans, except it might be just a little too realistic for some of the Veterans I've met. A lot of thought went into the planning and construction here.

Nice to visit and just be still, paying tribute to all those who served, very nice eternal flame. Take pause and be thankful to those who returned and to those who did'nt. Freedom is not free.

This is one of the best Vietnam Memorials that I have had the opportunity to visit. It is well kept, quiet, clean and well thought out. There is also a park adjacent to the memorial for little people to occupy their time.

Easily reached (near the MAF airport), this memorial is an excellent visit. The statue and chopper really gave visitors a perspective of the geography. Well worth the visit.
