The LZ Peace Memorial is a place of honor for those veterans who served our country, in war and in peace.

We’re located at Midway Village Museum, 6799 Guilford Road, in Rockford, Illinois.

How It All

Came About

It started on a hill in Plieku

Joe Falzone and Nick Parnello, two young soldiers from Rockford, met while in Plekiu, South Vietnam in 1969, and they vowed to meet for supper if and when they ever made it back home. They did and here's the rest of the story.

who gave their lives.


  There are over 20,000 veterans living in Winnebago county and thousands of them are Vietnam veterans.
