Vietnam Veterans Memorial Ceremony

Washington, DC
Friday, November 11, 2011

On this Veteran's Day, a tribute to Vietnam War Veterans takes place at the "Wall," which is the memorial wall of names of those who died in the Vietnam War. This year's annual ceremony on the National Mall in Washington DC comes just months before the groundbreaking of a visitor's center and "learning center."

The keynote speaker of the annual ceremony is journalist Joseph L. Galloway, an award-winning war reporter who has covered foreign affairs for nearly 50 years, and is the only civilian to receive the Bronze Star for Valor for saving soldiers' lives during the Vietnam War.
