361 Vietnam veterans to be honored through VVMF’s In Memory program in 2021

Since the Vietnam War ended, thousands of Vietnam veterans have suffered due to Agent Orange exposure, PTSD and other illnesses as a result of their service. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) believes all those who served in Vietnam should be honored and remembered for their service. The In Memory program enables the families and friends of those who came home and later died the opportunity to have them be forever memorialized. ​​​​​​​

VVMF is proud to announce that we’ll be inducting 361 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.

2021 In Memory honorees have been added to VVMF’s online In Memory Honor Roll. Friends and family will be able to share remembrances on the individual’s page. You can see the Honor Roll at: www.vvmf.org/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 was created in 1993 by the group – Friends of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. VVMF began managing the program and hosting the ceremony in 1999. More than 5,000 veterans have been added to the In Memory Honor Roll since the program began. To honor a loved one through the In Memory program next year, click here.
