Every Father’s Day, VVMF lays thousands of roses at the Memorial site. Each rose holds a personal message in honor of the fathers on The Wall, those who never had a chance to come home and start a family, and those who later died after the War ended. Family, friends and visitors are invited to take part in laying roses. It is a breathtaking site that demonstrates both the gratitude and the sacrifices of families impacted by war.
- Red roses symbolize those killed in action.
- Yellow roses symbolize those missing in action.
- White roses with red tips symbolize those who died after the War ended.
