591 Vietnam veterans to be honored through the In Memory program in 2020

Since the Vietnam War ended, thousands of Vietnam veterans have died each year due to Agent Orange exposure, PTSD/suicide, cancer and other causes related to their service. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund’s (VVMF) In Memory program honors those who returned home from Vietnam and later died.

VVMF is proud to announce that we’ll be inducting 591 Vietnam veterans into the In Memory Honor Roll. 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.

2020 In Memory honorees have been 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 4,700 veterans. We are currently accepting applications for the 2021 In Memory program. To honor a loved one through the In Memory program next year, click here.
