The Memorial was constructed from 1968-71 in Angel Fire, NM & was the first major Vietnam memorial in the United States. The Memorial founded by the parents of First Lieutenant David Westphall, who was among sixteen marines killed in an ambush in Con Thien, Vietnam. The grieving Westphalls used David's insurance policies as a catalyst for the construction of the Peace and Brotherhood Chapel.
