Another part of the Pensacola Memorial Park. This is a replica of the national memorial in Washington D.C. only with a helicopter accent.
The wall starts in 1959 when the US started to get involved with advisors.
It continues with far too many names. Unfortunately there were too many for me to accurately photograph. The granite makes for a great memorial but it is difficult to photograph well.
And these are the last of the names on the wall.
This AH-1 Cobra Helicopter sits atop the memorial. It was one of our most effective weapons during the war. I am sure many of those that served had some interaction with one of these lethal weapons.
There are several benches that make sure that the POW-MIA veterans are not forgotten. This one is dedicated to the Marine Corps. Others represent the other service branches and can be seen in the gallery.
This is a very well done memorial park. It has much more than the WWII memorial which we will touch on in a separate post.
