Kansas Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Junction City

Pictures and text by Scott Simmington

The memorial is in Junction City Kansas on the corner of 6th Street and Washington Street. I took the pictures on the morning of 1 May 2009. The memorial was dedicated on 4 July 1987. It commemorates the men and women of Kansas who either died or became missing in action during the Vietnam War.
