"A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers." - John F. Kennedy

The Texas Capitol Vietnam Veterans Monument was dedicated on the Texas Capitol grounds on March 29, 2014. More than 4,500 people attended. The monument is a testament to the honor, courage, sacrifice, and call to duty of all Texans who served in Vietnam. It also serves to honor those 3417 Texans that made the supreme sacrifce in battle.

The bronze monument rests on a pediment of concrete and Texas Red Sunset granite. It consists of five figures each 1.25 times life size representing the diversity of Texans that served: The Grunt - an Anglo-American; The Raidioman - a Native American; The Scout Sniper - a Hispanic American; The Medic - a Black American; The Wounded Soldier - an Asian-American. Below the figures are six bas relief panels each representing the military forces used in Vietnam. Two additional bas relief panels are included: one depicting the Vietnamese people, and the front bas relief with the Seal of Texas sided by two Vietnamese dragons.

The Texas Capitol Vietnam Veterans Monument is the first on the Capitol grounds to represent the ethnic diversity of Texas and the U.S. military, and the first accompanied by an educational mobile app to
