[ inscription on the north side, between the granite slabs ]
During
the 16 years
the war continued
American Soldiers
Sailors, Airmen and Marines
fought with heroism and
determination under some of the
most difficult circumstances ever
encountered by American armed forces.

Tragically, upon their return home
they received virtually no recognition for
their service and sacrifice because of the raging
controversy over United States policy in conducting
the war.

300,000 were wounded in action
75,000 were permanently disabled
58,118 were killed in combat
Later, thousands more would die as a result
of gunshot wounds and the dioxin code named "agent orange"

As of this date, November 11th, 1985, ten years after the fall of the Saigon
government and twelve years after the removal of American ground forces from
Vietnam, 2,489 brave Americans remain missing in action or held prisoners of war.
They Are Not Forgotten
