|Silver Valley Veterans Memorial|
|Frank Stanley Reasoner, First Lieutenant, USMC|
"Today the names of 58,193 Americans who died while serving in Vietnam line the wall of the Vietnam Veterans memorial in Washington, DC. Our own casualty totals, however, were dwarfed by those of the Vietnamese people. Over two hundred thousand ARVN, about 1.1 million Communist troops (Viet Cong and People’s Army of Vietnam), and about two million Vietnamese civilians were killed, all told about 3.3 million Vietnamese.
After the war was over, both sides claimed that it had been a noble effort. President Ronald Reagan dedicating the Vietnam memorial in Washington, DC, said, “We remember the devotion and gallantry with which all of them ennobled their nation as they became champions of a noble cause.” General Giap, who had been taught to throw hand grenades by an American, said in the 1990s that, for his side, the war had been a noble sacrifice."
