The Vietnam Veterans Monument will be funded entirely by private donations. Efforts are under way to raise the $300,000 needed to build the project and provide for ongoing maintenance.

“HOPE”, the centerpiece of the Monument, is a concave bullet-shaped cast bronze sculpture designed by local artist and Vietnam combat veteran, Gideon Carl Turner III.

Depicting a dramatic action moment during the war, cutout silhouettes feature an inbound Medivac helicopter and two soldiers running under fire while carrying a stretcher with a wounded comrade.

The sculpture is pierced by three bullet holes and encircled by a bas relief of a rice paddy. When completed, it will stand 20’ tall, 12’ wide, and weigh 4,000 lbs.

Future proposed plans include a Meditation Site, a small replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall and an Information Kiosk. All of these elements will be tied together with the Cemetery Memorial Trail.

The California Department of Veterans Affairs has approved the design of the Monument and the Northern California Veterans Cemetery has designated a site for its placement near the entrance to the cemetery grounds.
