Restaurants with Veterans Day Free Meals

Via Carl

    Vietnam Veteran's Memorial, State Capitol, Raleigh, NC
    Entitled "After the Firefight," this memorial honors the more than 206,000 men and women of the state who served in Vietnam. The monument depicts two soldiers carrying a wounded comrade to a nearby landing zone to await medical help. This monument is unique in that it is the first to be sculpted by a woman, and the first to depict an African American.

  1. Just a small historical note: The memorial in N.C. was dedicated on Memorial Day 1987. The memorial in Washington D.C. known as "The Three Servicemen", also depicting an African American US soldier, was dedicated 2 1/2 years earlier, on November 11th, 1984.

    Both memorials provoke much emotion. They are both beautiful and both capture the essence of the American Soldier in Vietnam.
