Today we honor Joseph C. Bors of Binghamton, New York, who went MIA on this day in 1968. He is remembered by his daughter, Anna:

Fallen comrades are together on the Wall, as they’d been in death

There is nothing to denote service or rank. No single person’s service or sacrifice is greater than anyone else’s. All are represented equally, with generals listed alongside infantrymen. vvmf.org/the-names

5th graders at Davis Drive Elementary School in Cary, NC wrote letters to a veteran thanking them for their service then left them at The Wall. A beautiful way to show their gratitude! ❤ ( by Kara Brem)

"Walking through this park-like area, the memorial appears as a rift in the earth, a long, polished, black stone wall, emerging from and receding into the earth."

We break down the order, the symbols, how we add names, and how to go about locating one.

The Wall has many stories surrounding it—stories of friends who reconnect, of families who meet men who served with their loved ones, of friendships and marriages forged there.

When the Vietnam Veterans Memorial opened, no one knew it was going to draw the number of people it does. The walkway and lights were not part of the original design, but thankfully, have been added. The Memorial is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week: bit.ly/2oHLkJQ
