A nice memorial to the fallen, and also those who never made it back home.

Vietnam Memorial With Music and Sound Effects

A very poignant memorial with sound effects. We were the only visitors when we stopped by. The memorial is behind a great BBQ joint, so we just walked over after lunch.

Vietnam Memorial With Music and Sound Effects

Very impressive and well marked with signs on the freeway and streets. There were a lot of visitors when we were there. The automatic sensors for the music and sound effects are sensitive and hard to trigger.
