Members of the Spring Valley Wisconsin Royalty visited the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 331 Memorial Helicopter on display at the Team Oil Travel Center in Spring Valley, Saturday, June 15, 2013.

Chapter 331 provided Spring Valley residents an opportunity to witness first-hand, a piece of history flown by local pilots in combat.

The memorial is not intended to break hearts, but to help mend broken hearts and improve memories of the sons and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, and mothers and fathers, whose lives have never been the same since the war.

Shown standing by the memorial are Jr. Princess Micaiah Holton, Princess Jordyn Snyder, and Princess McKayla Nelson. The girls were all born more than 20 years after the end of the Vietnam War.
