You are invited to join with us in paying tribute to all of our country’s service members on Veterans Day. Though we will be unable to host guests at The Wall for our annual Veterans Day ceremony, you can participate in this virtual patriotic tribute from wherever you live.
The virtual commemoration will begin at 1 p.m. EST on November 11, 2020.
When: November 11, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. EST
Where: This is a virtual event only – You can join us on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/VietnamVeteransMemorialFund/) or our website (https://www.vvmf.org/honorservice/)
Want to take part in the virtual event? We are asking all of our supporters to record and send us videos of them reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Learn more below.
Share with us your reading of the Pledge of Allegiance. All submissions must be received by 10/30/2020 for possible inclusion.
Before you record your Pledge, please listen to the example provided below by VVMF CEO Jim Knotts and try to match your speed/cadence with the sample version.
The Pledge of Allegiance
“I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
Since we can’t properly gather at The Wall in person, VVMF is proud to offer some new ways for you to experience the Vietnam Veterans Memorial virtually.

Service takes many forms. Besides the military, we serve our country, our communities, and each other through civic organizations, churches, community groups, and informal efforts. Using only 6 words (or one sentence), describe what service means to you.
We’ll be assembling all of the submissions and sharing them on this page in the days leading up to Veterans Day.
