The memorial pays tribute to the 80,000 Philadelphia Vietnam era veterans who served our country in our nation's longest war. By honoring these Americans, the Philadelphia Vietnam Veterans Memorial separates the warrior from the war, focuses on the valor and sacrifice of these patriots, and gives each of them a place in history.It has been an honor and privilege to serve.? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
