New York

In Albany, Empire State Plaza. In a courtyard near the Justice Building, are four bronze panels with the 4,123 names of those from New York who were killed in Vietnam. Located inside the building is the Memorial Gallery. The gallery serves as a resource center and an exhibit area, which hosts changing display related to all American wars and veterans issues. The New York State Office of General Services oversees the Memorial Gallery.

Located directly across the street from the State House, this site is tucked in a small plaza area, back from the street. We had to ask a nearby Security Guard where to find it. It would be easy to walk by if you were not aware of where it is.

As seen in the photos, it is also visible from the surrounding plaza area above it. The slope is so steep in this area that it lends itself well to this layout. The area is a beautiful place with its mixture of modern and historic buildings.

Next, I go to the Albany city memorial, nearby.
