This memorial is very nice. I have visited it several times. I had a Vietnam vet speak every time. The “ no man left behind” motto is so touching as the soldier on the way to the helicopter looks back over his shoulder.

It is a great memorial to Honor area citizens who gave the ultimate sacrifice. These Honorees are from the Permian basin.

I thought this was an excellent Memorial to Vietnam Veterans, except it might be just a little too realistic for some of the Veterans I've met. A lot of thought went into the planning and construction here.

Nice to visit and just be still, paying tribute to all those who served, very nice eternal flame. Take pause and be thankful to those who returned and to those who did'nt. Freedom is not free.
