Duty Honor Country

The statue  is located along Oak Leaf Trail at Veterans Park on northbound North Lincoln Memorial Drive, just north of where East Mason Street becomes North Lincoln Memorial Drive, Milwaukee, Wisconsin 53202.

NOTE: This can be a difficult location to access. I used street parking on southbound North Lincoln Memorial Drive (there is no parking on northbound North Lincoln Memorial Drive). There is also a parking lot for Veterans Park; then walk a distance to the memorial. Use the Google Map link to view the location before heading out.

The statue is located several hundred yards from the Southeastern Wisconsin Vietnam Veterans Memorial, a portion of which is visible to the far left in the above photo.
