I have yet to see anything in the LJW about the proposed Vietnam War Memorial in Wichita that some Vietnamese Americans want to put up. A single bronze statue in honor of those men from both the American and South Vietnamese armed forces. Apparently there is an outcry from veterans locally who say the one Memorial Park is for Americans only. A compromise was reached and it may be put on some city owned land near by but not in the park. The soldiers they wish to honor have no country anymore but the one here. Is this right? These folks are citizens that want to honor this country and their fellow former countrymen that died. Is that so wrong? Sounds rather xenophobic to me. What say you?
