On June 20, 2009, the 25th anniversary of the dedication of this Bucks County Penna Vietnam War Memorial, veterans of the Vietnam War and their families gathered here to honor the memory of the 136 young men from this county who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country during that war.

On this solemn occasion, a tribute was also paid to those Bucks County veterans of the Vietnam War who did return, yet later died or suffered enduring debilitating physical or emotional pain as a direct result of their wartime service.
