Black 10.6%
Other 01.0%
KIA Vietnam:
Caucasian/Hispanic 86.8%
Black 12.1%
Other 1.1%
What is this political correct horse pucky? The only Asians I saw in SE Asia were wearng black pajamas, or with the Main Force NV . I knew several American Indians who served, but the memorial should refect those who served some what ACCURATELY. Say 8-Caucasian/Hispanics, 1-Black, and 1-American Indian.
