Contribute To The Arcadia

VIETNAM WAR MONUMENT

Every generation has been asked to make their own sacrifices to protect the values that America stands for but only veterans of the Vietnam war were asked to do so much without the support of a grateful nation.

Construction of The Arcadia Vietnam War Monument was made possible by community donations and was gifted to the County of Los Angeles, to forever honor the City of Arcadia’s sons who were casualties of the war in Vietnam.
