Activity Description:  Every year on Father's Day, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) volunteers and staff place thousands of roses at the base of The Wall in Washington, D.C. to honor the fathers who never made it home, those whose lives were cut short as a result of their service, as well as the men who never got a chance to start families of their own.
 
We encourage our supporters to join us to help lay roses at the base of the Memorial.

Please note that this is an activity NOT a ceremony, there are no speeches or seating. You can participate in as little as 15 minutes.
