Kansas Vietnam War Memorial

About the Memorial
Kansas Vietnam War Memorial at Memorial Park
401 East Ninth Street
Winfield, KS 67156

Plans for the Vietnam War Memorial in Winfield began in 1987 when friends who had gathered for a class reunion wanted to find a way to honor their fallen classmates.  The project quickly grew from honoring only Cowley County servicemen to representing all 777 servicemen and nurses from Kansas who lost their lives or are missing in action from the Vietnam War.

The memorial is a replica of the Vietnam War memorial in Washington D.C.  It was also created as a tribute to servicemen and nurses who served in any world war.
