Thanks to the U. S. Navy Seabees in 2004 this dream is a reality!
On September 20, 2004 at 13:00, flags were raised for the first time.
THIS WAS THE SUNSET OVER THE PARK THE NIGHT BEFORE THE DEDICATION. AWESOME GOD!
THE REMAINING MAJOR TASK IS TO FIND FUNDING - $400,000.00 (100,000 PER STAR POINT) - FOR THE BLACK GRANITE THAT WILL BE AFFIXED TO THE SIDES OF THE REMAINING 4 STAR SHAPED BUILDINGS THAT WILL BE INSCRIBED WITH THE NAMES TO HONOR ALL OF THE 3,460 BRAVE MEDAL OF HONOR RECIPIENTS.

Here on The Vietnam Veteran's Memorial War Page is a place you can fine a friend or a loved one killed in that war. I was moved by the dedication and caring that went into this memorial to honor those who gave their lives for our country.
