Help us Build the Center

After building The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund (VVMF) continues its mission to honor, educate and heal by building the Education Center at The Wall. The Center will be the place on the National Mall where the stories and sacrifices of our heroes will never be forgotten.

ABOUT FACES NEVER FORGOTTEN

The Faces Never Forgotten program is an effort to put a face and a story to each name on The Wall through the generosity of those willing to help locate their photos and make financial contributions to build the Education Center.  This program will ensure this vital piece of history will be remembered and honored by visitors from around the globe for generations.

PUTTING FACES TO THE NAMES

If you have a picture of a loved one or fellow veteran whose name is on The Wall, please help the Memorial Fund honor these individuals by putting a face with a name.  Regardless of whether or not the Memorial Fund has a photo of the individual already, we encourage you to submit it anyway.  We are trying to collect as many photos of each individual as possible.

FOR STUDENTS, TEACHERS AND YOUTH SERVICE GROUPS

Hometown Heroes is a unique service learning project that encourages students to learn more about local veterans who gave the ultimate sacrifi­ce and to send the pictures and stories of those on The Wall to VVMF for use in the Education Center on the National Mall.
