Long Description:
This memorial was designed by Tom Chriswell, a Vietnam veteran.


This memorial was built to convey our gratitude and appreciation of the men and women who served during this difficult time.


This memorial structure is constructed of a carbon steel framework covered with stainless steel sheeting. The 24 foot inverted V is intended to convey the discord and controversy that surrounded this war. The bronze bas relief sculpture, sculpted by the designer Tom Cristwell, depicts a young women wrapped in the US flag, an American Soldier and an American Prisoner of War all beneath the extended wings of an eagle as a representative of freedom.

On the front and back of the diagonal leg of the memorial are listed the names of the 251 Idahoans who lost their lives in the war.

Requiescat In Pace brothers - For as long as your names are remembered so too are you. Thank you for serving for us and your country.
