Since 1995, the NJVVMF has provided a place to honor those who have served and continue to serve our country. Our Memorial is truly a place “To Remember, To Heal, To Honor” through ceremonies and outreach programs.

Our Vietnam Era Museum & Educational Center is the only museum in the country dedicated to encouraging an understanding of the Vietnam Era and its lasting impact on American culture at the local level. Our programs and services include guided tours, lectures and public programs, educational programs and unique historical collections.

You can help support our work in many ways— from becoming a member to purchasing merchandise and including the NJVVMF in your financial plans. Your support helps us develop innovative and relevant educational and public programs. It also ensures that New Jersey’s veterans receive the respect and services they deserve.
