Located in Frankfort, Kentucky, overlooking the state capital, Kentucky Vietnam Veterans Memorial contains the name of 1,103 Kentuckians killed in the Vietnam War. The memorial is in the form of a sundial with the names placed so that the tip of the gnomon's shadow touches each man's name on the date of his death, thus giving each fallen warrior his own personal memorial day.

  • I rode across country from Los Angeles to DC to support veterans, we stopped here along our way. Really beautiful memorial. The staff here were very friendly and welcoming. I really enjoyed this Memorial even though I served many many years after Vietnam This was a real treat to come here and visit
  • The memorial is nice, but the time is off about 2 hours. Would be a great place to visit for veterans and their families. Not much else to see here.
