The Angel Fire Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a poignant and informative tribute to our armed services personnel. Whatever your feelings about conflict, this memorial brings home the human component and sacrifices paid by our soldiers and by their families.

No matter if you are a veteran or not, a visit to the Memorial is a must when you visit Angel Fire. Started by Dr. Westphal after his son was killed in the Vietnam war, it has become a visual & spiritual monument to all those who have served this country. Words cannot suffice. One must just go & experience... More

A nice stop if you're touring the Enchanted Circle or out in the Angle Fire area and enjoy history from that era. The museum tells a family's heart breaking loss in the war and how they turned their pain into a place where other families could come to heal. It's has numerous war era artifacts. I've been to many of... More

If you are a veteran, into history, or a touch sentimental, visit here. This memorial has a great story connected to it and is a treasure for us all to share. It could be a quick stop or you could easily spend an hour on the grounds and one inside the visitors center.

such a great ride to get here and wonderful scenery. The story that goes along with the building of the memorial is inspiring plus you have to visit the chapel there too.

One of the best Vietnam Memorials I have visited. A compelling story if a family, a war, and those who served and died. It is in a beautiful setting.

This moving Vietnam memorial sits in a lovely setting above the area near Angel Fire. It consists of a chapel, an outdoor auditorium and Visitors Center. The center has much information about the Vietnam War. The memorial is stunning and moving and should be visited.
