Dayton, Ohio

—Honoring Clark, Darke, Greene, Miami, Montgomery, Preble, Warren Counties —

The land for this memorial was donated by
the City of Dayton and its people in respect
and tribute to the Viet Nam Veteran.
"This is a living memorial...today is a celebration
of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. No
statues of war torn soldiers with pointed firearms
will guard this park. For the Viet Nam Veteran
has chosen not to remind America of war and
turmoil, but to further the dreams of peace
and serenity."
Mayor Paul R. Leonard May 30, 1984
