The Vietnam Wall will be in Estes Park at the Scot Fest September 4th through the 7th at the fairgrounds. A local disabled veterans group “History and Heroes Foundation” with great honor will proudly display the amazing statue “The Death of Two Souls” at their booth during the festival. The booth will be just outside the ball field where the wall will be displayed. Everyone is encouraged to come see it. This wonderful art work has never been on display with the wall. The following is a write up explaining this amazing bronze statue.
Artist Bill Prewitt “The Death of Two Souls”
“The death of Two Souls” was an image that I held until 2006 when I put it into bronze. It is the tremendous pain of a squad leader holding his mortally wounded comrade and calling to God. It took place in1968 with 1st Battalion, 3rd Marines, Charlie Company 2nd Platoon on Mutters Ridge (or Mothers Ridge) in Vietnam. I was a corpsman for this platoon and to witness this emotional display of despair, love, and loyalty is something I can never get out of my mind. This young man died nearly instantly and there was nothing I could do. Many of us witnessed tragedy in various forms during combat. I felt this display on that day really told our tremendous frustration, hurt, yet unwavering love for our comrades.
History and Heroes has volunteered to help visitors at the wall locate the names on the wall. We still have need for volunteers to help. If you would like to volunteer please call Rich at 970-682-9985. Our web site is historyandheroes.org
The National Veteran's art Museum in Chicago has an unusual work of art which you may not have even known existed! When visitors first enter the museum, they will hear a sound like wind chimes coming from above them and their attention will be drawn upward 24 feet to the ceiling of the two-story high atrium.
The dog tags of the more than 58,000 service men and women who died in the Vietnam War, were hung from the ceiling of the National Vietnam Veterans Art Museum in Chicago on Veterans Day, November 11, 2010. The 10-by-40-foot sculpture, entitled Above & Beyond, was designed by Ned Broderick and Richard Stein.
The thousands of metal dog tags are suspended 24 feet in the air, 1 inch apart, from fine lines that allow them to move and chime with shifting air currents. Museum employees using a kiosk and laser pointer help visitors locate the exact dog tag with the imprinted name of a lost friend or relative.

What better time then now to remember our veterans whom have sacrificed for our freedom. Give the gift of healing by donating to History and Heroes. Your donation is the best way to say “thank you.” Our target goal of $100,000 will help provide housing and treatment to our nation’s heroes for their service, dedication, and sacrifice. The transition from combat back to civilian life is difficult, and many veterans experience post-traumatic stress, depression, hopelessness. One in seven of our homeless population is a veteran. Please help us help them. This holiday season, you can make a veteran’s future brighter with a generous donation.
