Stopped at the only state park in the U.S. dedicated exclusively to Vietnam veterans. This has to be one of the most emotional place on the planet, even if you're not a Vet. The story and pictures are heart wrenching and it tears at your soul that we were involved in such a useless, stupid, wasteful, idiotic war that expended many of the lives of ...
