The Texas State Capitol grounds are filled with a collection of monuments that remind us of the service and sacrifice of Texans in times of war: the Heroes of the Alamo, the Confederate Soldiers, and Texas veterans of World War I, World War II and the Korean War. Now the thousands of Texans who served and the 3,415 young sons of the Lone Star State who perished in the Vietnam War will be also honored by a monument on the Capitol grounds.
During the 2005 79th Regular Session of the Texas State Legislature, the legislature approved House Concurrent Resolution 36, authorizing a Vietnam War monument on the Capitol grounds. The Texas Capitol Vietnam Veterans Monument Committee, all of whom are Vietnam veterans, was established to commission and fund the Monument construction. Last week, the committee announced that work on the 14-foot bronze sculpture has begun at the Deep in the Heart Art Foundry in Bastrop, Texas.
The sculpture by artist Duke Sundt features five infantry figures poised in patrol positions. On the base surrounding the fighting unit are panels depicting naval, artillery, medical and aviation services that supported the combat patrol. The monument will honor all Texans who served during the Vietnam War, including the 107 Texas men who remain Missing In Action; the 17 Native Texans who earned the nation’s highest commendation, the Congressional Medal of Honor; and the 3, 415 Texans killed in action. The Texans killed in Vietnam will be remembered by “dog tags” personalized with each man’s name, military service, hometown and date of loss. These tags will be entombed inside the monument.
The Texas Capitol Vietnam Veterans Monument is tentatively scheduled to be installed in the fall of 2013 on the northeast side of the Capitol grounds.
