“Biloxi trip? SEE Vietnam Veterans Memorial”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2012

Just a few miles east of the casinos and hotels in Biloxi lies the Mississippi Vietnam Veterans Memorial - but it's so MUCH MORE than that. Begun in 1927 with a plaque honoring veterans of "the world war" (they did not anticipate another one) there are plaques honoring WWI, WWII, Korea, and Vietnam War veterans. An entire main mast of USS Mississippi has been rebuilt and mounted in the WWII section. A"Huey" in MedEvac colors is mounted on a pedestal as it swoops toward the Vietnam Veterans MIA section. Flags from all Southeast Asia nations and others fly in honor. An entire section for SUBMARINERS is found, as subs are built very nearby in Mississippi. The Vietnam portion is very, very meaningful for my generation (I'm in my 60's) with a MIA section complete with photographs, and the "wall" commemorating Mississippi's sacrifice is actually two facing each other, again complete with photographs. You will be touched in a reflective, hopefully meaningful way. It's a "must see" in my book.

There is more than just a "wall", there are other artifacts relevant to Mississippi veterans.

“Very Impressed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2012

Was suprised that this beautiful Park is not better know. They had tributes to all wars as well as a small picnic area with some out door equipment for the kids. The Vietnam Memorial is done with pictures as well as with names. GO
