I don't think this or the Korean memorial are publicised enough. Only came across them when walking up from south street. If I had planned for this visit, I would have... read more

I was walking toward the river in my typical wondering manner and stumbled upon this memorial. My uncle fought in Vietnam and I am a veteran myself. Quite touching. Nice surprise.
