Greater Rochester Vietnam Veterans Memorial

Highland Park, Rochester, New York

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial of Greater Rochester features a winding walkway lined with steel bollard plaques, each remembering one of the 279 Monroe County residents who gave their lives for their country in the Vietnam War. A timeline parallels the memorial bollards, educating and creating awareness of the procession of events before, during, and after the Vietnam War. The walk of honor moves through and around landforms to depict the magnitude of sacrifice made by the people of Monroe County, and to provide visitors a solemn place to reflect.
