an exact half-scale replica
Vietnam Veterans Memorial
A half-scale replica, 250-foot granite wall, engraved with the names of 58,272 fallen service members from the Vietnam War.
It duplicates the original wall design found in Washington, D.C., even using the same quarry found in India for the granite.
The wall is impressive and breathtaking, yet a bleak reminder of the sacrifices made by many. About 130 of the names on the wall are those from the Siouxland area, where the park is located.
To see this wall for yourself, you’ll see and read the names and beyond those names you’ll see the reflection of yourself. Those names represent (along with countless others) the true price paid for your freedom and our freedom in these United States of America.
