534 Vietnam veterans to be honored through the In Memory program in 2019

im header

VVMF’s In Memory program honors Vietnam veterans who returned home and later died as a result of their service. These veterans are not eligible for inscription on The Wall under Department of Defense guidelines. In Memory is a way that Vietnam veterans can be honored on the National Mall.

VVMF is proud to announce that we’ll be inducting 534 Vietnam veterans into the In Memory Honor Roll at our ceremony in Washington, D.C. on June 15th. We look forward to honoring these veterans who returned home from Vietnam and later died as a result of their service. For more information on In Memory and this year’s ceremony, visit: www.vvmf.org/inmemory

2019 In Memory honorees will be added to VVMF’s virtual In Memory Honor Roll. Friends and family will be able to share remembrances on the individual’s page. Click here to see the Honor Roll.

The plaque that honors these veterans was dedicated as a part of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial site in 2004. It reads:

In Memory of the men and women who served in the Vietnam War and later died as a result of their service. We honor and remember their sacrifice.

In Memory began in the 1990s and has honored more than 3,600 veterans.

To honor a loved one through the In Memory program next year, click here.

Correction: An earlier version of this blog post stated that 529 Vietnam veterans would be honored through the 2019 In Memory program. That number has since changed to reflect 534 honorees as part of the 2019 program.
