  • I grew up seeing the helicopter behind enstroms, and now i can't imagine not seeing it. I think it honors those who fought and served very well.
  • Very nice site to commemorate and remember those who paid the highest price for the freedoms we sometimes take for granted. Good explanation of the Vietnam Campaign ribbon on site as well. A must read.
  • A random gem. Stopped in Fruita to meet some family for lunch and accidentally stumbled on this memorial.
  • Has a picnic area, lush green lawn and history. Kids will love to see the helicopter.
