What an amazing tribute and memorial to the men and women who served in the Vietnam War and those that made the ultimate sacrifice. Exhibits on the grounds and in the Visitor Center honor these veterans. The items on display drive home the impact that this war had on our country and the struggles soldiers and their families had during... More

This was my first visit but my travel companion had been there several years ago. He kept commenting on how much it's grown and how incredible the displays are. It was very good before - good enough to go back - but SO much better now in his opinion. With a son who served three tours in Iraq, it really... More

I can't write a lot more than others have shared about this magnificent memorial and tribute to those who served and lost their lives during this controversial conflict. We were just expecting a monument, but were pleasantly surprised by a ultra-modern and comprehensive museum down below. This place is out of the way, but very, very worthwhile, so if you... More

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. The grounds are in one of the most beautiful settings we have ever seen. There are displays outside and within the... More

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.
