Portsmouth, Ohio: Vietnam Mural

In a town known for its professional food wall murals, this solo effort is on a building wall a block away. Choppers, soldiers, and, "It is our duty to remember."

West edge of town, on the north side of OH-73/2nd St., between Massie and Madison Sts. The mural faces east, so it can only be seen driving west.
