Vietnam Memorial Wall Replica and Helicopter

The Huey helicopter destroyed by Hurricane Ivan in 2004 at the Veteran's Memorial Park has finally been replaced by an AH-1JC Cobra, painted to look like it did while in service over Vietnam. The helicopter was dedicated during the park's 15th Veterans Day Anniversary, Nov 12, 2007.

Wall South Wall South - Replica Vietnam War Memorial

An exact replica (smaller scale) of "The Wall" monument in Washington, DC. "Wall South is the only permanent Vietnam Veterans Memorial outside of the nation's capital -- to list the names of all 58,217 Americans killed or missing in Southeast Asia." A popular destination for military reunion groups, Veteran's Park also contains monuments to WWII and Korean War Veterans. This park is a lovely maintained tribute to military veterans.

[Vicki Stevison, 11/13/2000]

A salvaged Nam Era helicopter is poised over the 3/4 scale wall. It was the nation's first "full-name" replica of the Vietnam Veteran's Memorial in Washington, D.C. Another replica wall is reported to be in Winfield, KS.
