This Powerful Yet Peaceful Monument Memorializes New Mexico’s Vietnam Veterans
Did you know New Mexico has approximately 75 memorials dedicated to the soldiers who have served this country? Awhile back, station KRQE published an interactive map that details where each of these monuments stands. If you’re not sure where to start, we recommend checking out the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Angel Fire.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date.

The grounds and chapel are always open to the public. For additional information or to purchase items from the memorial’s gift shop, visit its website or Facebook page.
