Vietnam War Tribute Memorial
Birth: unknown
Death: unknown

Memorial. Located at the National Veterans Art Museum Chicago, Illinois, is the immense sculpture entitled "Above and Beyond", which was officially dedicated on May 25, 2013. Designed by artist Ned Broderick and Dick Stein, "Above and Beyond" is one of the most unique, powerful and stirring memorials ever, to honor the service men and women who died in the Vietnam War. When visitors enter the museum, they hear a sound like wind chimes and their attention is drawn upward to second story of the 24 foot high atrium. There they see the 10 x 40 foot sculpture "Above and Beyond", with the names of over 58,000 Vietnam War veterans on metal dog tags suspended in air one inch apart from ceiling, which allow them to chime with the air currents. A museum facility person can use a kiosk and laser pointer device to help visitors locate the exact dog tag with the imprinted name of lost relatives and friends. In addition to the Vietnam War Memorial, there is many other exhibits at the museum dedicated to US Veterans past to present. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
