The Philadelphia Vietnam Veterans Memorial is designed to honor those who served in all branches of the United States armed forces during the Vietnam War. 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.

This memorial was erected exclusively through the volunteer efforts and generous contributions of the citizens of the Delaware Valley area. To those who have helped, the Philadelphia Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund extends its sincere appreciation.
It has been an honor and privilege to serve.? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ?
