The Big Spring Vietnam Memorial is a war memorial located in Big Spring, Texas, United States, honoring American servicemen (especially those local to Big Spring) who gave their lives, became prisoners of war or went missing in action in the Vietnam Conflict.

Dedicated May 27, 1991, the black granite memorial monument measures 9.5 feet (2.9 m) by 6 feet (1.8 m) by 6 feet (1.8 m), and bears the names of 41 Howard County servicemen who were killed or taken prisoner of war in the Vietnam Conflict, a map of Vietnam, and a POW-MIA logo.
