The Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall, a three-quarter-scale traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., will be on display at Rose Hills Memorial Park & Mortuary in Whittier, this month. The event is free and open to the public 24-hours a day from Tuesday, March 23 through Tuesday, March 30.
The replica is eight feet high and 240 feet long. Its black, reflective surface is inscribed with the names of more than 58,000 servicemen and women who died or are missing in Vietnam.
The Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall is one of many efforts of the Dignity Memorial network to honor and support our nation’s veterans and active military. Other initiatives and programs include the Veterans Planning Guide, the Dignity Memorial Homeless Veterans Burial Program, educational veterans seminars and special pricing and benefits for members of three veterans service organizations.
Throughout the week, events will take place to help the community honor and remember Vietnam Veterans and to educate youth through first-hand experiences and discussions with Veterans. For program information visit www.rosehills.com or call Bonnie at (818) 681-5777.
The Dignity Memorial provider network created the replica in 1990. The Dignity Memorial Vietnam Wall is dedicated to all Americans who served in Vietnam and honors all veterans of the U.S. military.
