OUR MISSION The mission of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Fund is to honor and preserve the legacy of service and educate all generations about the impact of the Vietnam War.


I N 2017, V V M F C OM M E MOR AT E D T H E 35T H A N N I V E R S A RY of the dedication

of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. The Wall was built in 1982 on a promise to ‘never forget’ those that served and sacrificed all in Vietnam. VVMF has kept that promise over the last 35 years by honoring the service of all and preserving the legacies of those who died during the war and since returning home. It’s our goal to ensure that younger generations learn about the lasting impact of the Vietnam War on American families. Over the past year, we welcomed more than five million visitors at The Wall in DC. Across America, we engaged with more than 250,000 visitors at The Wall That Heals – including 34,000 Vietnam veterans and 14,000 students in 39 different communities. We compiled a book of “Wall Magic” stories – stories of unbelievable coincidences, twists of fate and “magical moments” that have brought long-awaited healing and reunited loved ones. These are stories that our volunteers at The Wall witness every day.

Through our In Memory program, we honored more than 400 Vietnam veterans who returned home and later died from causes related to their service. At our annual ceremony, the families of these veterans spoke of healing and at long last – acknowledgement – for their loved ones’ service and sacrifice. From the more than 4,000 photos collected in 2017 by volunteers across the country for the Wall of Faces to the thousands of items left at The Wall and curated for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Collection over the past year – the continuing impact of the Vietnam War is all around us. In 2017, VVMF’s reach expanded across the country and online and impacted more veterans and their families than ever. It’s only because of the generous support of our donors that we can continue our work to honor, preserve and educate every day. I hope you’ll explore in these pages some of the incredible work that VVMF was able to do in 2017 because of your support. We look forward to what we can do together in 2018 to ensure that our nation’s Vietnam veterans will always be remembered for generations to come.

E V E RY DAY, V V M F WOR K S TO HONOR the service and sacrifice of the Americans who served in Vietnam. We honor the service of all and preserve the memory of those who died during the war and since returning home. On the days that our nation sets aside to honor service and sacrifice – Memorial Day and Veterans Day – VVMF hosts thousands of attendees at our annual Observances at The Wall. Memorial Day 2017 featured Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, co-directors of The Vietnam War on PBS, speaking about what they learned after working on their film for more than 10 years. In March, we commemorated the 35th anniversary of the groundbreaking of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. In June, we held our annual In Memory ceremony and honored 412 Vietnam veterans whose lives were cut short as a result of their service after they returned home. The following day, more than 2,800 roses were laid at the base of the Memorial to honor fathers, and those that never had the chance to become fathers, on Father’s Day. In September, we held a candlelight remembrance at The Wall on National POW/MIA Recognition Day to honor our missing service members and their families. All of these ceremonies and events are made possible through the support of our generous donors.

HONOR


HEAL


T H ROUGH T H E WA L L T H AT H E A L S , VVMF is able to reach into communities across America to honor those who served and sacrificed in Vietnam and educate younger generations about the impact the Vietnam War and era had on American families. It gives Vietnam veterans and their families who may not have a chance to travel to Washington, D.C. an opportunity to visit The Wall. The Wall That Heals visited 39 communities in 2017 spreading Page legacy to more than 250,000 visitors The Wall’s healing including 34,000 Vietnam veterans and 14,000 students. The mobile Education Center gives communities a teaching moment to educate about the lasting impact of the Vietnam War and era. In 2017, the mobile Education Center was updated to include new items left at The Wall and new stories of those on The Wall. We continued our partnership with the Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) to provide trucking companies and drivers to “Haul The Wall” from community to community. A special thanks to USAA as the presenting sponsor for the 2017 tour with additional sponsorship provided by PBS, GEICO and FedEx. The Wall That Heals runs on support from our generous corporate sponsors and individual donors.

IT IS V V MF’S PR I V ILEGE TO PR ESERV E the legacies of the more than 58,000 service members inscribed on The Wall and physically care for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial site. More than five million people visited The Wall in Washington, D.C. in 2017 and VVMF strives to provide each visitor with the best experience possible. Four times a year, VVMF ensures that the Three Servicemen Statue and In Memory plaque look their best by having an Object Conservator attend to them. The care of the lawn around the Memorial and the printing of new directories are also part of VVMF’s care and preservation efforts for the site. Each spring, VVMF receives names from the Department of Defense that they’ve determined should be added to the Memorial. In 2017, we added three names to The Wall. We also changed the status of five service members who were accounted for the previous year. Through the support of our generous donors, VVMF can facilitate and fund these changes to the Memorial and provide for the preservation of the Memorial site for generations to come.

IN 1982, THE WA LL BEG A N with a promise to never forget. Keeping that promise puts education efforts at the forefront of our mission. We must educate current and future generations on the lasting impact of the Vietnam War and era. VVMF’s high school-level curriculum, Echoes from The Wall, continues to expand across the country. Available free-of-charge and complete with background readings, in-class and extension activities and lecture presentations, the materials focus on four areas of impact: social, military, media and politics. In 2017, VVMF partnered with PBS Learning Media to make Echoes from The Wall curriculum accessible online. We hosted 17 Items Left at The Wall distance learning programs – to virtually connect students and senior centers around the country with the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Collection of items left at The Wall. We also partnered with the Smithsonian to create a Learning Lab page about the Vietnam Era. We hosted a Girl Scout Day at The Wall in October with nearly 400 Junior and Brownie Girl Scouts in attendance. VVMF can continue and expand these educational efforts because of generous supporters across the country.

THE NE XT STEP IN V V M F ’S M IS SION to EDUCATE is the campaign to build the Education Center at The Wall. Currently in the fundraising stages, many exciting developments happened in the last year. With all necessary approvals now in hand, only raising the required funds stands in the way of starting construction. In 2017, the capital campaign received the largest single cash donation in its history when Lilly Endowment Inc. awarded VVMF with a $10 million grant towards building the Center. Tremendous progress was made in the campaign to find a photo of every service member on The Wall. More than 4,000 photos were collected in 2017. These photos, currently displayed online in VVMF’s Wall of Faces, will be displayed in the future at the Education Center at The Wall. In January of 2017, we announced that we’d surpassed the 50,000 photos collected mark. VVMF’s curatorial staff continues to curate and research items for the virtual collection of Items left at The Wall and the future Education Center. More than 1,400 items were curated in 2017. Just like The Wall, the Education Center can only be built from private funds from VVMF’s generous supporters.
