The National Vietnam War Museum


For many Americans, Vietnamese, and others, the war in Vietnam was the defining event in their lives. It was a conflict that divided families and brought violence both to Vietnam and to the United States. Each of us had a Vietnam experience.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C. as well as many other community and state memorials have been established to recognize the sacrifice of the 58,260 that gave their lives during that most unpopular and longest war the United States has been involved in to date.

These memorials, which have done much to aid in the healing of the wounds brought on by this conflict, do not provide an opportunity to reflect knowledgeably on the many other aspects of the era. This turbulent period influenced events in much of the world that still affect those who lived through the era, subsequent generations and governments around the globe.

At its peak, over half a million U. S. soldiers, sailors, airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen were serving in Vietnam, the surrounding waters and countries, along with millions of Vietnamese and thousands of Australians, New Zealanders, South Koreans, Thais, and Philippinos.

They, along with their friends and families, have been misunderstood and misrepresented for over thirty years.

When completed, The National Vietnam War Museum will offer an educational environment where people from all over the world can come to remember, learn and understand….

30th ANNIVERSARY OF THE WALL – READING OF THE NAMES

30th ANNIVERSARY OF THE WALL READING OF THE NAMES

 

Reading of The Names

Reading of The Names

 

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is hosting the Reading of the Names of 58,272 service members inscribed on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. as part of the special activities planned this November to commemorate The Wall’s 30th Anniversary.

The Reading of the Names will take place at The Wall for 65 hours over a four-day period beginning with an opening ceremony on Wednesday, November 7, 2012 at 3:00 p.m.  Volunteers will read names for approximately eight hours from 4 p.m. on November 7 to 12 a.m. on November 8.  Participants will then read the names for 19 hours daily from 5 a.m. until 12 a.m. on November 8, 9, and 10.

The Reading of the Names took place in Washington, D.C. just four other times in The Wall’s history.  In November 1982, the names were read aloud at Washington National Cathedral as part of a week-long National Salute to Vietnam Veterans.  The names were read at The Wall during the 10th Anniversary celebration in November 1992, during the 20th Anniversary celebration in 2002 and during the 25th Anniversary celebration in 2007.

If you are interested in participating in the Reading of the Names, please click the image above or below and follow the instructions.
