Reading of The Names

The Reading of the Names is a rare and incredibly special event. The last time all of the names etched on the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C. was in 2007 for the 25th anniversary of The Wall.

This year, the Reading of the Names coincides with the 30th anniversary of The Wall and will involve volunteers reading all 58,282 names over several days.

The deadline for specific name requests is fast approaching. Those requests must be received by Aug. 17.

All other requests are due by Sept. 14.

Final notification of reading times will be sent by Oct. 1.

More information and the request form is available here.
