When this memorial was dedicated, Vietnam Veterans Memorials were very few. The war was still going on. Protestors from around America were trashing Vietnam Veterans as baby-killers and village-burners. It is part of history. With a cross on it or not, it represents ALL Vietnam Veterans from across America.

This Vietnam Memorial in Oregon is one of the first in America. The Wall in Washington DC was not built, until the early 1980s.

Save the Coos Bay, Oregon Vietnam Veteran Memorial.

Exactly right - freedom isn't free and we're the ones picking up the tab for groups having the ability to run around using that first amendment; they need to remember that we have that right, too. I think that we should be allowed to put up any monument we care to.
