Pueblo has more than one Memorial but I selected the one I thought was most encompassing.   This Memrial is between tow on way streets (which I realized as I was going the wrong way!) .  Its very well maintained and visible for a LONG ways. 3 granite slabs hold the names of the Colorado KIA's with all the flags behind them.  Off to one side there is a "Freedom Tree" donated by the family of a Marine Captain KIA in North Vietnam in Sep 1968. A true living Memorial. There is also the only woman from Coloradokilled in 'Nam - she was killed when terrorists bombed our Embassy in Saigon in 1965.  She was the secretary to the CIA Chief of Station and the separate Mmorial is very appropriate.  It reminds you not only that women died in this war but some casualties were not military.  And, terrorism is not new. 

A quiet bautiful spot where our warriors can be seen and visited by all.

NEVER FORGET!

Run For The Wall 2015
