To All of Those Who Lost Their Lives
From Doug Potter. Vietnam 67-69
Vietnam Veterans Memorial
This purpose is achieved primarily by supporting the mission of the the Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park. The park provides a memorial to veterans and a Visitors Center that serve as a place for reunion, reflection, healing, and sharing of experiences.
The memorial was originally known as the Vietnam Veterans Peace and BrotherhoodChapel and had its origins in a battle near Con Thien, South Vietnam in which 16 men lost their lives. Among the men, was David Westphall, son of Victor and Jeanne Westphall. Thanks to their vision and determination the memorial exists today to honor not only these 16 Marines but all members of America’s armed forces.
Using my blog, www.survivethriveptsd.com to share the many memorials to those who served and fought for our freedoms is an honor. I am especially grateful to participate in the mission of creating awareness for the children and families of veterans everywhere who served too!
