Just wanted to pass it along >'Mysterious' Vietnam War Memorial | Military.com Subj: RE: 'Mysterious' Vietnam War Memorial | Military.com Mind blowing. Makes me think it was a combat soldier from the early days of the older Indo Chinese wars. Perhaps as far back as the Japanese occupation of VN during WWII. It's hard to figure out (without lots of translation and other clues) if the person or persons is Vietnamese, Indian, Japanese, French, American, Chinese or what. Its a great reminder that the people of Vietnam were at war for a hundred years before we ever heard of Vietnam. Perhaps the best thing to come out of our involvement in Vietnam is the end of hostilities that were ongoing for so many generations. I hope that whoever dedicated themselves to this monument has found some peace.
