TO THE EDITOR: I would like to share a Disabled American Veteran Magazine article, “Education Center Planned for Vietnam Memorial,” with the Press-Republican readers.
The Vietnam Veteran 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 visitors center and learning facility to be built on the grounds of the Vietnam Veterans and Lincoln memorials.
Visitors will better understand the profound impact the Vietnam War had on their friends and family members, their hometowns and the nation. The 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 friends and families of all who served.
