The Kentucky Vietnam Veterans Memorial honors the 125,000 Kentuckians who served the nation during the Vietnam era (1962-1975). The plaza of the Memorial contains the names of Kentuckians who died. Each name is precisely located so the shadow of the sundial pointer touches the name on the anniversary of the death. Thus, each fallen veteran has a personal Memorial Day. For more information, see the Kentucky Vietnam Veterans Memorial website.
