Vietnam Veterans of America has maintained a clearinghouse of information about state and local Vietnam veterans memorials since the mid-1990’s. We have information about scores of memorials in every state at the national office in Silver Spring, Maryland, including memorials that many of our chapters were instrumental in building.
The information is open to VVA chapters and to the public for research purposes. To make an appointment, call 301-585-4000 ext. 160 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We also have been running a feature in The VVA Veteran in recent months by Vietnam veteran Al Nahas, who has documented some 85 memorials around the country for his book Warriors Remembered . Watch for his tribute to the Ponca City, Oklahoma, POW/MIA Memorial in the upcoming July/August issue.
Another Vietnam veteran, Michael Walsh, who lives in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C., has been doing yeoman work documenting state and local Vietnam veterans memorials around the country. An excellent recent article in The Washington Post chronicled Walsh’s quest to visit and photograph memorials in all fifty state. So far, Walsh has been to 27 states and his photos and info on about a hundred memorials are on his blog , which he calls “A Means to Heal.”
