In Memory Honor Roll
And while this Memorial of solemn granite walls — laden with panel after panel inscribed with hundreds and hundreds of names — is dedicated to all who served, there are many veterans who have died prematurely as a result of the war and whose names will never be commemorated in stone. How do we acknowledge the debt to those whose lives have been cut short because of exposure to a defoliant sprayed in the jungles of Vietnam? How do we show understanding for those veterans whose psychological wounds never healed, and enduring the pain no longer, died at their own hands, either directly or indirectly? How do we help bring closure to those families who grieve their loved one's bitter death even as they grieve their loved one's shattered life? These are the silent casualties who are honored by the Memorial Fund's In Memory Program. This is where we can honor these brave individuals.
