Our Mission

More than 265,000 military and civilian women served around the world during the Vietnam Era in professional, technical, leadership, and humanitarian roles. Nearly 10,000 of these women shared the crucible of war while serving in Vietnam during the conflict. They made a difference. They gave their lives.

The Vietnam Women’s Memorial was established not only to honor those women who served, but also to educate the American public about their service. The culmination of more than a decade of grassroots organizing and activism, the Vietnam Women’s Memorial was dedicated on November 11, 1993 as part of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial.
