One of the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation’s most important projects is collecting biographical information on the men and women whose names are listed on the Memorial.
Having this information will allow us to forever preserve the memory of those who gave their lives in Vietnam. Our goal is to one day have the biographical information and photographs for each of the New Jerseyans who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their state and country. This information is also used to help teach younger generations that each name on the Memorial had a life and an individual story. We want to demonstrate to visitors that these were real people who lived complicated lives. Through learning about those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, visitors can create strong connections to the past.
The New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial Foundation Museum is delighted to announce that The Wall of Faces now has a photograph for each of the 1,563 New Jersey Vietnam Veterans who died while deployed overseas serving their country in the Vietnam War.
We are always looking for more information about those we honor, this includes personal memories, character traits, hobbies and of course photographs.
