DUSTOFF Huey Hoisted Above Veterans Memorial Park In Las Cruces, NM
A Vietnam War-era Huey Helicopter is installed at the new Vietnam War Memorial at Veterans Memorial Park on 1 March 016.
The New Mexico Vietnam Veterans War Memorial Project in Las Cruces, NM, is a memorial paying tribute the 398 New
Mexico Vietnam veterans killed in action (1955-1975).
The memorial, titled “Heroes Never Thanked,” also honors all Vietnam veterans who served in Southeast Asia and
those who have made the ultimate
by giving their lives during the Vietnam War. Each KIA Vietnam Veteran from New Mexico have their photo metal
engraved and set in a semi-circular stone wall as part of the memorial.

Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day
March 30 is a very special day for a generation of veterans who had served in their Nation's Armed Forces with
honor, valor and a patriotic commitment to defend the values and freedoms that make this country so unique. They
were the veterans of the Vietnam War who, rather than receiving a hero's welcome home, became the scapegoats of a
divisive crossfire of negative public sentiment and disapproval of the U.S. Government's involvement in an unpopular
war. In many cases their sacrifice went unappreciated, dismissed or was even insulted. Over the almost 15-year
course of the War, more than 3,400,000 Americans served in support of U.S military operations in Vietnam and
Southeast Asia, while more than 58,000 members of the Armed Forces gave their lives and more than 300,000 were
It was not until 2011 that Vietnam Veterans would finally be granted the recognition and reward they
had earned. That year, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution designating March 30th
of each year as "Welcome Home Vietnam Veterans Day," almost 38 years to the day of the final withdrawal of U.S.
combat and combat-support troops from Vietnam. Though long overdue, all Americans should pause today to
recognize and thank Vietnam veterans -- America praises their sense of duty, unselfish devotion and courageous
willingness to put their country first.
