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The Huey helicopter destroyed by Hurricane Ivan in 2004 at the Veteran's Memorial Park has finally been replaced by an AH-1JC Cobra, painted to look like it did while in service over Vietnam.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 - 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.

A salvaged Nam Era helicopter is poised over the half-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.
