The memorial is located in a park by the side of the Susquehanna River. On the river side of the memorial, the ground is dished slightly, and contains stone slabs to mark fallen victims of the Holocaust. A bronze casting stands above the slabs; the side facing the street is etched with a time line of this tragic and horrible chapter in history, while the side facing the river calls forth its ghosts. Beside a pool that runs to the river is the inscription “Who will give us water to wash the dead?”.

Vietnam Veterans' Memorial - Michigan
This design for the Michigan Vietnam Veterans' memorial was awarded an Honorable Mention from a field of 200 entries. The memorial inscribes in stone one soldier’s last letter home, sent days before he was killed in action. A pool holds a meditation platform at one end, and a bronze statue of a soldier in a poncho at the other. The names of Michigan natives killed or missing in action are cast in the bronze wall that curves down into the gentle stream. Water from the stream cascades down beside the memorial, echoing the sounds of the jungle, carrying memories of life and death.
