Connecting our Nation's Future with our Nation's Past


For many, the Vietnam War occurred in America’s distant past, and is awarded little more than a brief mention in textbooks.


In fact, nearly half of the 5.6 million people who visit The Wall annually were born after the memorial was constructed in 1982. To them, the more than 58,000 names etched in black granite represent faceless patriots without historical context. 



Together we will ensure these sacrifices will always be treasured and these names will never be forgotten

The Time is Now

A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it honors, the men it remembers.
— President John F. Kennedy
