Vietnam Memorial Bricks to be dedicated


On December 9 at 4:30 pm, there will be a dedication of Memorial Bricks in front of City Hall in Alachua to honor the 48 young men from Alachua County that were killed in action in Vietnam. A roll call of all 48 names will be called, with a bell chime after each name is called. Taps will be played at the end of the roll call. The public is invited to honor these young men and their families.

The Santa Fe College Foundation is raising money for a Bridge Scholarship in the name of these 48 young men, so their legacy will live forever. The goal is to raise $20,000 for returning veterans who have enrolled at either UF or Santa Fe College but are still waiting for their GI Bill funding. So far, $13,000 has been raised. If you would like to contribute, checks should be made to the Santa Fe College Foundation with the memo “KIA Alachua County Vietnam” and mailed to Santa Fe College Foundation, 3300 NW 83rd St. F-207, Gainesville, FL 32606.

  • While it’s essential to pay tribute to our veterans, documents confirm that all wars since WWI were contrived for banker profit. The unlawful Federal Reserve Act of 1913 continues to finance products of war while incurring unsustainable national debt.

    Marine, General, Smedley Butler is the famous whistelblower who confessed that “WAR IS A RACKET”. Today the conservative values of non-intervention has been forgotten. Both houses of congress continue to finance “empire wars” of financial aggression against sovereign nations. The wars of 9/11 were no less contrived. Today, it’s almost common knowledge that 9/11 was a false flag attack where explosives were used to demolish the Twin Towers.
