The annual Memorial Day ceremony is co-hosted yearly by VVMF and the National Park Service to pay tribute to members of America’s armed forces who have made the ultimate sacrifice in Vietnam and in all conflicts.
VVMF will observe Memorial Day 2020 with a virtual commemoration and we hope you will join us online at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, May 25th. Visit www.vvmf.org/alwaysremember for more details.
In Memory Day
The In Memory Program honors those who served in Vietnam, returned home and later died as a result of their service. Every year there is a ceremony to pay tribute to these men and women who sacrificed so much for their country.
Father's Day Rose Remembrance
This Father’s Day, VVMF is assisting Sons and Daughters in Touch in holding a virtual ceremony to honor their fathers who are inscribed on The Wall. We hope you’ll join us in this virtual Father’s Day commemoration by sending in a video tribute and then coming back here on Sunday, June 21st at 1:00 p.m. to watch the commemoration.
Every Father’s Day, VVMF remembers fathers on The Wall, those service members on The Wall who never had a chance to come home and start a family as well as those fathers who later died as a result of their service in Vietnam. This year, we will continue with our tradition of laying roses at The Wall on Father’s Day but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only a limited number of VVMF staff will lay the roses. We invite you to sponsor a rose with a personal message and VVMF staff will be honored to lay a rose for your loved one.

September 18th is POW/MIA Recognition Day this year. Check back soon for details on how to sponsor a candle.
The annual Veterans Day ceremony is co-hosted by VVMF and the National Park Service to pay tribute to all of our country’s servicemen and servicewomen, regardless of what conflict they served in. On this special day, prominent Americans from all walks of life come to the Memorial to deliver thought-evoking and patriotic speeches.
Hosted by the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Volunteers, the Christmas Tree Ceremony is a beautiful tradition that remembers all who served and sacrificed. A Christmas tree is decorated and stands at the apex of The Wall throughout the holiday season.
