Ohio VI

This memorial in Vietnam Veterans Memorial Park in Dayton, Ohio is called a living memorial. The dedication plaque says that you will find no "... war torn soldiers with pointed weapons... the Vietnam veteran... remind America of the dream of peace and serenity."

This site was difficult to photograph in a way that would do it justice. Everything is flat in the memorial itself. It is a circular stone walk with the lost sons and daughter listed by county.

Other interesting parts of the site are the American Red Oak (state tree of Ohio) marking the POW/MIA site and the crypt containing mementos from the era.

The exact location of the park, also called the Miami Valley Vietnam Veterans Memorial is;

S. Patterson Blvd. and W. Stewart St., Dayton, OH, 45409

intersection of S. Patterson Blvd. and W. Stewart St., just north of the Stewart Street Bridge
