“A pleasant surprise”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

This is a local war memorial that is very well done. It has the black panels of the one in Washington and a real Huey helicopter in the air above it.

My husband lost a brother in Viet Nam, so this was especially close to his heart. Very moving display and statues

“A wonderful memorial”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Found this by accident when we visited Fruita Colorado. It was located next to our hotel and we walked there. It is good to be reminded of the sacrifice that our soldiers made in servicing in Vietnam.
