VVMF launches Republic of Korea Wall of Honor

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) is pleased to announce the launch of its Republic of Korea Wall of Honor. The Wall of Honor displays the names of the more than 5,000 South Korean service members who lost their lives during the Vietnam War. The public can view the Wall of Honor at: https://rok.vvmf.org. The Republic of Korea Wall of Honor is a partnership between the Republic of Korea and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF).

The Republic of Korea Wall of Honor compliments VVMF’s Wall of Faces, which holds the names and photos of the more than 58,000 U.S. service members who fell in the Vietnam War and have names inscribed on The Wall in Washington, D.C. 

VVMF's Wall of Faces users can access the Republic of Korea Wall of Honor by selecting which country they want to search. The public can leave remembrances and submit photos on behalf of the fallen South Korean service members.  The Australian Wall of Faces, launched in 2015, is also linked to VVMF’s Wall of Faces. 

Allies who fought alongside the U.S. during the Vietnam War included: South Korea, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, and the Philippines. South Korea sent more than 300,000 combat troops to fight in South Vietnam and lost more than 5,000 military personnel. Australia sent more than 60,000 combat troops (from 1962 to 1973) and suffered 521 combat deaths in Vietnam. 

The Wall of Faces allows families and friends to honor fallen U.S. service members by leaving remembrances, stories, and photos. With the addition of the Republic of Korea Wall of Honor, VVMF can help ensure that those who served alongside the U.S. are never forgotten.
