The memorial site is in Missoula, Montana and I took the pictures on December 3, 2009. This memorial commemorates Montanans who served and died in what has been termed "America's Forgotten War". Here they are no longer forgotten in Montana where a state memorial was erected on June 14, 1997 as a tribute to their dedication and sacrifice.
