Chapter 996 Raising Funds to Build Replica Wall

Vietnam Veterans of America Northern New Mexico Chapter 996 is raising funds to build a half-size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial and install it near the Vietnam Veterans Memorial State Park in Angel Fire by mid-2021. So far, the group has raised about $30,000 of the estimated $300,000 needed to create the 250-foot-long structure.

Leaders of Chapter 996 state Department of Veterans Services officials inked an agreement to designate a place at or near the Angel Fire memorial for the wall. Angel Fire is the perfect location for a new memorial, chapter member Eddie Romero told the Santa Fe New Mexican, because “it is a healing place for Vietnam veterans and their families.”
