‘Mysterious’ Vietnam War Memorial

Vietnam veterans memorial on Sargents Mesa
“Cycle ride from Tomichi Creek off of Highway 50 near Gunnison, CO up to the Continental Divide, where we found this war memorial tucked away in seclusion. You won’t find it on any maps. An old local at the Tomichi Trading Post said the Park Rangers keep it off maps…the story is that a Vietnam Vet somehow used a chopper to sneak the pieces in.

Wild Thing’s comment.………
This is truly amazing. What a great find and to be able to see this, so very special..
….Thank you Tom for sending this to me.

I wonder how many more small memorials there are for Vietnam. I like this one because it also acknowledges the SE Asians we fought for.
