Last month, during a trip to the county courthouse to photograph and transcribed documents related to my ancestors, we located this Vietnam memorial in the Town of Amherst, which is the county seat.

"Acknowledging heroic acts of men and
women who have fallen in freedom's battles
through out thoughts, prayers, deeds, and
institutions is a necessity to sustain
democracy for future generations."

All Gave Some, Some Gave All.
Gone, But Not Forgotten.
