1970 - 1972

— [Vietnam Veterans Memorial] —

Olathe captured the attention of the nation, and of the world, in 1970, 1971 and 1972, with four fund-raising drives to provide holiday furloughs for 28 Olathe servicemen then stationed in the Vietnam war zone.

Olathe was the first community in the nation to show such an organized support of its servicemen.

With pride in our community, this plaque is dedicated to honor all Olatheans who served their country during the Vietnam War.
