Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park
The only state park dedicated exclusively to veterans of the Vietnam War lies in the foothills of New Mexico's Sangre de Cristo Mountains in the Moreno Valley, close to Red River. Begun by Victor and Jeanne Westphall in honor of their lost son, David, the memorial now stands as a symbol of national significance. It is also one of the main stops in the annual "Run for the Wall" motorcycle run that honors veterans and prisoners of war.
Attracting thousand of visitors who come to reflect and respect the sacrifice of the lost soldiers, this park features the distinctive sail-shaped Peace and Brotherhood Chapel, a Huey helicopter known as "Viking Surprise" and an informational visitors center that holds collections of war time banners, photographs, and media. The chapel is open 24 hours a day and welcomes all visitors.
