Wall South Vietnam Memorial to be updated with 140 new names


Join us at Veterans Memorial Park on Wednesday, March 29th at 3 PM to observe 140 new names being etched into the granite of the Wall South Vietnam Memorial.

Since the formation of the Veterans Memorial Foundation it has been a goal to ensure the Wall South gets updated to identify and memorialize all of the casualties of the Vietnam War. Through extensive research by volunteers and members of the foundation, these new names have been identified as casualties of the Vietnam War since the Wall South was constructed in 1992. This update has been made possible by the generous grant received from the Bear Family Foundation. In attendance will be several veterans of that war.

The new names will be formally unveiled as a part of the Memorial Day ceremony in May.
