Education Center Planned for Vietnam Memorial
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., commonly called The Wall, may soon have an addition that will be a place where the stories and sacrifice of those who served in our nation’s military will be honored and remembered.
With a groundbreaking planned for November 2012, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Foundation says the Education Center at the Wall will be a multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art visitor’s center and learning facility to be built on the grounds of the Vietnam Veterans and the Lincoln Memorials. Visitors will better understand the profound impact the Vietnam War had on their friends and family members, their home towns and the nation. The education center will feature the faces and stories of the 58,272 men and women on The Wall, honoring those who fell in Vietnam, those who fought and returned, as well as the friends and families of all who served.
Established in 1979, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., promoting healing and educating about the impact of the Vietnam War.
