Outside the Mount Vernon Recreational Center in Alexandria, Virginia is an unexpected memorial dedicated to Captian Humbert Roque “Rocky” Versace and 67 other men from Alexandria who died or went missing in action during the Vietnam War.
At the center, a sculpture depicts Captain Versace playing with two children. Around the perimeter is a stone bench that names each of the 68 men in the order they died or went missing during the war. Forty-one of the 68 are buried in nearby Arlington Cemetery. The memorial, designed by architect Toby Mendez, was erected in 2002.
