photoblog image Statue: Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Statue: Vietnam Veterans Memorial

I have shown this before--the Vietnam Memorial near Raleigh's capitol building. Two soldiers and a wounded buddy wait for a helicopter that never comes.

C'est une sculpture très émouvante. Rappel d'une époque douloureuse.

This is a really powerful sculpture Larry
Larry Bliss: Not only that, it is a compelling composition no matter the angle.
Does every town have a Vietnam war memorial Larry?
Larry Bliss: Many do. North Carolina is home to many military families.
Realistic and thought provoking.
Larry Bliss: Heroism and tragedy in one statue...
Oh I was an Amer. resident during the Vietnam war and lost friends and had many wounded friends. Not good memories of those times.
Larry Bliss: My heart goes out to you... the war was a national tragedy...
A powerful reminder of what was a terrible war
Larry Bliss: Yes indeed. I was one year too young to be drafted.
A fine memorial, Larry, I have seen one similar in Prescott, Arizona.
Larry Bliss: It is a good memorial, one that Vietnam vets have embraced. It took a while, but I am glad my nation finally began paying attention to their sacrifice.
