Oneonta Viet Nam Memorial
Organized by: Gene Schmidt
The Viet Nam war was very deviding to America. Still men and women went to war. Way too many never came back They gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country. For this they should never be forgotton especially by their hometown. We do not have a memorial for just our homeyown heroes, just a plaque at the High School which not many ever see. In one of our parks we have monuments foe WW1, WW2, Korea, all listing names of the fallen from here. A county Nam memorial lists all from the county. No memorial just for our fallen in Viet Nam from Oneonta. We need to change this. It is altogether fitting and proper that we do so. Target date for dedication is Memorial day 2015. We will have been pulled out of Viet Nam for 40 years next year 2015. What a great time to remember our fallen there.
