  • Very quick but well done memorial. Worth a walk through if you stop by the visitor center. Nice tribute and even a helicopter

  • This memorial is in the parking lot of the Colorado Welcome Center in Fruita. It's a well-done tribute to those who fought in Viet Nam and a memorial to those who gave their lives.

  • It is OPEN. Stopped into the rest area to stretch my legs and found this beautiful memorial to CO’s Vietnam Era Vets. Beautiful grounds and a stirring tribute. 👍🏻👍🏻
  • My husband's uncle was one of our Colorado Vietnam veterans. The property was beautifully taken care of and it's heartbreaking how many Colorado Natives have died in the line of fire for our country. The only trouble we had was finding our family on the carvings. They had a book with all the names, but the one section we were looking for.
