Vietnam War Sundial

Fascinating use of a sundial to remember Kentuckians who died in Southeast Asia.

Kentucky Vietnam Veterans Memorial

The Kentucky Vietnam Veterans Memorial is a spectacular if somber sight. Situated near the top of a hill overlooking the Kentucky capitol, this is the best veteran memorial I have ever seen outside of Washington, DC.
