Dunwoody to build Vietnam War Memorial 'to recognize the collective sacrifice of soldiers'
Dunwoody will soon welcome a Vietnam War Memorial.
The city's mayor and city council joined the Vietnamese American Community of Georgia and the Atlanta Vietnam Veterans Business Association for Tuesday's groundbreaking for the memorial at Brook Run Park.
The new monument will be the seventh memorial east of the Mississippi to feature an American Infantry soldier and a soldier from the former republic of South Vietnam standing side by side. It will be funded entirely by private donations, according to the city.
