Vietnam War memorial to be completed in time for Veterans Day
Editor, the Advocate:
Thumbs-up to the Yorktown chapter of the Vietnam Veterans of America. The dream of a Vietnam Memorial is almost a reality. The parade of flags are flying in honor of the Vietnam Veteran and all comrades in arms, past and present. The memorial is located at the curve on State Highway 72 in Yorktown.
The memorial is still under construction and should be completed by Veterans Day 2011. The Vietnam Era armed forces consisted of volunteers and, the last two decades, those selected for mandatory military service. Sacrifices were great in our era of service. The Vietnam Veterans: "All gave some - some gave all. Time was served; now its time to honor."
