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 as a result of their service in Vietnam.
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.
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.
