"IN MEMORY OF ALL VIETNAM VETERANS
 
This memorial was erected in the memory of the young individuals who went to war as kids and lost their youthful dreams, and some their lives, for a cause - freedom and honor - and came back as men with the horrors of war instilled in every fiber of their being and were never given the respect and honor they so dearly deserved from the public or United States government. 
 
God will one day judge our actions. Until then, He will shine on the lives of each veteran now and forever more because He was with each one of them in Vietnam. He is the only One that truly know what they went through and are living with every day.

"ARIZONA MEDAL of HONOR

 

The Medal of Honor is the highest military decoration awarded by the United States Armed Forces to those who distinguish themselves conspicuously by gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of their lives above and beyond the call of duty while engaged in an action against and enemy of the United States.

 

The first Medal of Honor action in our nation's history occurred at Apache Pass, Arizona on February 13, 1861, by U.S. Army Assistant Surgeon Bernard J.D. Irwin. 

 

During the Indian Campaigns 152 native Americans were awarded the Medal of Honor for action "on the ground" in Arizona. 

 

Arizona's Sylvestre Herrera is the only man in history to receive both the Medal of Honor and the Mexican equivalent. 

 

The first 11 Medal of Honor recipients listed below were Arizona native Americans who fought in the 1871-1873 Indian Campaigns.
