In Memory Day Ceremony
This year, on National Vietnam War Veterans Day on March 29, the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation will be inducting twenty individuals into our In Memory program.
In Memory is a unique program that honors New Jersey men and women who served and died as a result of the war in Vietnam. This program was initiated to honor these veterans and civilians. Their names will be placed on an engraved stone inside the Memorial so that all who visit will know that they are with their honored comrades.
Some of these deaths are due to Agent Orange exposure, Hepatitis C and the physical or emotional wounds received in Vietnam. The deaths of these individuals are no less tragic than those that occurred in-country, but their names do not appear on the Memorial.
This event is free and open to the public. We invite our community to join us in commemorating the lives and legacies of those we’ve lost to the effects of the Vietnam War.
