Vietnam: In Their Own Words, Story Telling at the Vietnam
Women’s Memorial
is an educational program presented
by the Vietnam Women’s Memorial Foundation. Today we
combine the stories of those who served during the Vietnam
era with the stories of those individuals serving in today’s
armed conflicts. The lessons learned in the past of bravery,
the desire for peace, courage, and sacrifice are being relearned
every day.

The Vietnam Women’s Memorial Foundation is a non-profit
organization dedicated to honoring women who served during
the Vietnam era. For additional information on the Memorial
or its products and projects including other educational programs,
Sister Search, or research on women who served during the
Vietnam era, you are invited to visit the Foundation’s
Web site at Donations to the Foundation which support these and other
programs are always appreciated. For additional information
on how to contribute, please consult our Web site and/or call

If you or someone you care for finds that they need help
coping with the
aftermath of Vietnam, you are invited to call the Veterans’
Administration who
will work to assist you, including connecting you to the counseling
offered by Vet Centers located throughout the United States.
