This Vietnam Memorial FDC appears to be somebody's peace statement. The stamp featured is 2109, showing the memorial and visitors. The other add-on stamps are The Lions International issue, 1326 from 1967. The emblem shown is the MACV military insignia worn by members of the U.S. Army assigned to that unit. It stands for Military Assistance Command Vietnam, a non-combat unit whose purpose was to advise and support the military of the Republic of Vietnam or South Vietnam. The map shows the countries of the region, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Thailand. Together, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia were known a French Indo-China. Laos and Cambodia went their own way in 1951, and in 1954 the French were defeated in Vietnam but probably not without leaving their mark on that country forever. The wall has the name of every American who died or is still listed as missing in Vietnam inscribed on it.
