About Arcadia Vietnam War Monument Memorial
who we are
We will never forget
Vietnam happened long before our culture accepted the idea that we can support our troops regardless of whether or not we support the policy decisions that sent them to war. The City of Arcadia as well as cities throughout our great Nation lost many of their sons to the war in Southeast Asia. The Arcadia Vietnam War Monument was constructed in tribute to the fourteen Arcadia servicemen who paid the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam and honors all Vietnam Veterans who made it home alive only to return to an ungrateful and inhospitable Nation and home front.
Construction of the Arcadia Vietnam War Monument at the Arcadia County Park was a collaboration between Monument Founder/CEO Gene Glasco and Michael D. Antonovich- 5th District Supervisor for the County of Los Angeles. Before hundreds of people, the colorful dedication of the Arcadia Vietnam War Monument Memorial took place on 28 May 2016 at the Arcadia Regional Community Park.
Continuing improvements and maintenance of the Arcadia’s Vietnam War Monument is on going. Donations are fully tax deductible.
