Minnesota Vietnam Veterans' Memorial
Located on the State Capital grounds, this memorial honors Minnesotans who served in the Vietnam War. More than 1000 names are engraved in the granite memorial. These are the Americans who were either killed or missing in action as a result of the war. Pay your respects by visiting this memorial site honoring those who gave their lives in service for their country. There is a book of names nearby which gives the location of each name on the monument. The location is a little hidden, so look for the monument close to the freeway and in the center of the grounds. Parking is available on the street or in lots not designated for state business.
I like the Minnesota Viet Nam Veteran's Memorial because it is an easy trip for me when I need to visit and a great location for Memorial Day services. I respect veterans of all wars but this Viet Nam Veteran's Memorial meets my own personal needs.
