Michigan VIII

Last time, Michigan VII, I promised to post a few more from this great site in Freedom Hill County Park.

This was the first time I have seen this particular information; losses categorized by Unit. And, rarely do you see the number of women who served listed, note that one of the 8 women killed in 'Nam was from Michigan.

If you follow this site with any regularity, you have heard me complain, on a couple of occasions, about the use of non-Vietnam era helmets on The Field Cross. Well, they did it right here. Good job, folks.

Those lost a featured on individual bricks too, while others, who were not lost, are honored on bricks of different colors. This, too, is something I have not seen before this visit.

A final pic of a Vietnam Service Ribbon that was placed upon the pole that supports the Huey at the site. Makes sense tome as I believe that there is no other more iconic image of the war than the Huey.

Next time, we will travel to Minnesota to see a small town memorial there. So, please join me on the 2nd of August, as always, at 9:00am.

To see other memorials from Michigan, or any other state, click the state name on the left side of this page.
