The memorial has lots of detail and I thought it would be interesting to include some of it for you to see.
The above pic depicts the ferrying of 1000 ARVN troops to a new location.
This pic names the operation "Chopper" and says that it took p;ace in 1962.
Some of the major battles are listed here, including a few of those not so often mentioned.
Once again, The Field Cross, but also with what to me is a more modern helmet. Does anyone know if these helmets were used in 'Nam? Did they come in after I was there, 1967- '68? I would love to know, because it just seems wrong, sloppy, to me if this is incorrect.
Next time, on July 3rd, we will visit Maine, so join me there at 9:00am.
