The incredible bravery and sacrifice of the Hmong Lao veterans during the Vietnam War should never be forgotten.

Louie Ferris, who has already raised money and completed three memorials at Veterans Freedom Park, has received approval for a third memorial honoring the Hmong Lao Vietnam Veterans. This memorial is to be completed and dedicated by July of 2019. He has been working with Mr. Nao Tou Lor and Mr. Za Xa Vue on the memorial’s design. Unfortunately, due to an illness Mr. Ferris incurred, almost 5 months were lost in preparation and fundraising. Thankfully, Mr. Ferris is enthusiastically able to continue to work to see this memorial honoring the Hmong Lao Veterans completed. To support this important project please join Mayor Tim Kabat and other distinguished guest speakers on Sunday, February 10th.
