Located in Frankfort, Kentucky, overlooking the state capital, Kentucky Vietnam Veterans Memorial contains the name of 1,108 Kentuckians killed in the Vietnam War.

  • Interesting and serene "sundial" that tells the time as points in life... A beautiful park space as well to remember and reflect. Well worth a stop.

  • To me this is one of the best Vietnam Memorial around. Before you go up to the memorial, read the plaques. They will tell you how the shadow will be on the names of vets who died on the anniversary....  more

  • Most unique way to honor Veterans who gave all in the calling of the nation. In a nutshell, the shadow falls on the name of the fallen on the Anniversary of their passing. It is a bit confusing to explain, but just know each Warrior has a well thought out honor highlighted by the sun. The park has an incredible view of the Capitol, which is a fitting place to honor them all.
  • Great place to check out while in Frankfort. Beautiful view of the Capital especially at night. A plus if you are a Pokemon player!
