Pavilion recalls Vietnam War

    Artist Mary Jacobs, left, with her daughter-in-law Tricia Bosley and engineer Tom Sole, checks out the maps she designed for the new Vietnam Memorial Pavilion at the National Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl. Jacobs, who is almost 90, was commissioned to create the mosaic maps as additions to the existing World War II and Korean War murals that she made for the cemetery in 1971.
