Beautifully laid out tribute to those who served, and fell, in Vietnam. Your presence on the platform triggers Paint it Black and the noise of a 'copter - evocative of that era when so much was asked of American youth. A lovely place.

Very nice memorial. Bad location. Right in the middle of a bunch of resturants and other businesses. Looks like not a lot of thought went into this project.

Loved that you could walk up the handicapped accessible ramp to read all the names. A very well thought out memorial.

Very nice site to commemorate and remember those who paid the highest price for the freedoms we sometimes take for granted. Good explanation of the Vietnam Campaign ribbon on site as well. A must read.

The Vietnam War Memorial is right behind the Colorado Visitors Center, which is located at the Fruita exit on I-70. Just look for the Huey on the memorial's pedestal.
