A center colonial blue granite panel displays a bronze plaque. This plaque contains an epitaph and the names of the 67 servicemen from Washington County, Pennsylvania whose names are on the Vietnam Veteran’s Memorial in Washington, D.C. On the left of the plaque is a bronze 'bas relief' of an M-16 rifle and Vietnam-era helmet and combat boots. On the right of the plaque is a bronze map of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. Across the top of this panel are the words: "WELCOME HOME". The center panel is flanked by angled, polished, Galaxy-black granite "wings" that are similar to those on the wall in Washington, D.C. An exposed-aggregate walk leads into a patio that surrounds the front of the memorial. In the middle of the patio is a five-sided, polished, Galaxy-black granite column. The column sits on a black granite star. On each face of the column is one of the five service branch medallions. On the top of the column sits a large, bronze eagle.
