Tarheels cry too

Ok, just off of highway 85 between Charlotte and Greensboro North Carolina, is a small park with a special purpose. It is the North Carolina State Vietnam War Memorial. It is very well done and certainly invites one to come stay for a while. Nice to see that in a state that has long been familiar with sacrifice, people still realize the cost of freedom.
Flags of the US, POWs, and North Carolina.

Wall listing the names of all North Carolinians killed in Vietnam
A nearby creek, adding to the tranquility of this place.
