FORT BENNING, Ga. – A Vietnam Monument was dedicated at the National Infantry Museum Thursday. The monument recognizes those who fought in Vietnam.
It is specifically dedicated to “The Blackhorse Regiment,” who served in Vietnam from 1966 to 1972.
Hundreds of veterans came to see the monument. Vietnam Veteran Major General Longhouser said he had a sense of pride being able to see the monument being dedicated at Fort Benning.
“It provides a memorial and a memory in all of our hearts of the sacrifice that was given by friends, by soldiers and by the sons and daughters of Mr. And Mrs. America,” MG Longhouser said.
The monument is located at National Infantry Museum’s Inouye Field and Pattons’ Park.
More than 1,000 Vietnam Veterans and their families are in Fort Benning until this Sunday for a reunion.
