Vietnam Veterans Memorial

"The Vietnam Veterans Memorial on Milwaukee's beautiful lakefront was dedicated on October 20, 1991. It is the first memorial erected in Milwaukee County's 94-acre Veterans Park, and stands as a tribute to all the men and women who participated in the Vietnam War. Its unique design of three Wausau red granite columns, standing 22, 26, and 30 feet respectively, represents those killed in action (KIAs), those taken prisoner of war (POWs), those missing in action (MIA's), and those who returned home. Five granite benches located behind the columns symbolize the five branches of military service (Army, Marine Corps, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard) while encircling the memorial are 11 granite posts each signifying one officially recognized year of the Vietnam War."
