The left side of the slide features four paintings of Al Alexander’s: “Heavy Weight Contenders,” “Delta Dragon Ship,” “Red LZ” and “Lonely Point.” There are tanks patrolling a jungle road, Huey helicopter dropping troops in a hot landing zone (a Red LZ), a point man on the lookout as he approaches a river crossing, and a patrol boat engaging the enemy on the river bank. Near the muzzle end, a banner reads, “Vietnam Veterans Tribute."
The right side features: “Another Day at the Office,” “Double Trouble” and “Ringside for a Fast Mover.” A helicopter gunner covers troops on the ground, personnel carriers with troops and helicopters overhead, and a Phantom dropping napalm as troops observe from a distance. A banner reads, “Lest We Forget, All Gave Some, Some Gave All,” in honor of all who served in Vietnam.
