Save the Coos Bay, Oregon Vietnam Veterans Memorial.

After 41 years, a group of protestors want the Memorial removed from a Coos Bay City park.

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.

Many people gave their life for this Country und this is just one way to Honor them for what they have done for us. Iam a Christian and it just irritates me that when a few Heathen start crying the whole world should listen to them,well i start crying to because i stand up for what is right and the Truth.That CROSS should be left thereand families and friends of those who died can go there and have a moment or 2 with their loved ones in memory thats why that CROSS should stay there period.

Thanks, Gary for sending this for me to sign. They rather forget the Vietnam War did not happen but it did; just because it was not supported by the American people, we need to remember those members of the Armed Forces we lost over there and the ones that never came home. None of like WAR but it happens and is happening now, our Troops need our support and thanks for serving our country. Thank you all Veterans for serving your Country and defending our Constitution.

Well, I have no idea who would want to take down the Cross. I think it's only symbolic to use the Cross. God said that we should not use images in worship, no shape or form, but, if it is used in remembering our fallen brothers I don't see any problem. I came from Vietnam and was met by the same bull+*it that most of us were given.

I pulled my tour in 67-68, I was even given the blessings of the TET offensive. I've since then learned that War is wrong, god never meant for man to kill each...

I pulled my tour in 67-68, I was even given the blessings of the TET offensive. I've since then learned that War is wrong, god never meant for man to kill each other, we were created in God image so, each time one of God's creation fell by another's hand we were killing God's image. It's like where do we get the authority to kill one of God's creations?

I'm not trying to take away any honor from anyone that served our Country, fallen or the ones that came home to unthankful as*h**es that passed judgement on the ones that came home alive, some of us came home shot and with mangled bodies, some Blind, some without arms or legs, This burns me up.
