IN MEMORY PROGRAM
VVMF’s In Memory program honors those who died as a result of the Vietnam War, but whose deaths do not fit the Department of Defense criteria for inclusion on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C.
Every year, there is a ceremony to pay tribute to these men and women who sacrificed so much for their country. The ceremony is held on the third Monday in April: In Memory Day.
During the In Memory Day ceremony, the names of all the honorees are read aloud. At the conclusion of the ceremony, family and friends take special tributes honoring their loved ones down to The Wall. These certificates bear the honoree’s name, photo and other information. The tributes are collected by the National Park Service and stored in the permanent archive. In addition, the honorees are included in an In Memory Honor Roll Book to serve as a lasting reminder of their service and sacrifice. Around 2,000 individuals have been honored through the In Memory program.
If you know of anyone whose death was related to Vietnam War involvement and you would like to honor them through this program, please complete an In Memory application and return it to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund along with a copy of the death certificate, proof of service in Vietnam, a clear photograph of the honoree and a short biography.
