Arkansas V

Clinton, Arkansas is the County Seat of Van Buren County and is about 50 miles west and north of Searcy. Located at the Court House is this memorial to the three from the area who were lost in the war. The city of Clinton has just over 2 ,000 residents and the County just over 16K and once, again, the very few found away to honor the even fewer~ those who gave all for a war they may, or may not have understood or agreed about.

The inscription on the memorial reads;

Van Buren County Remembers Vietnam
For those who returned,
Thank you God.
For those who died,
Glory forever God.
For those who are still missing,
Please God,
The Soldier above all other people
Prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear
the deepest wounds and scars of war.

In Memory of
Ricky Curtis Bradley
PFC., U.S. Army

Edward Wilson Griffith
Capt., U.S. Army

Gary Cecil Hall
Capt., U.S. Air Force
