|Story Telling at the Vietnam Women’s Memorial is an educational program presented by Eastern National and the National Park Service. On this Veteran’s Day remembrance, we will hear the stories of those who served during the Vietnam era. We are commemorating the 25th anniversary of the dedication of the memorial in 1993. The lessons learned in the past of bravery and the desire for peace, courage, and healing are reflected in the remarks of these individuals.
In 2015 the Vietnam Women’s Memorial Foundation joined Eastern National. We are 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 you are invited to visit the Vietnam Women’s Memorial Web site at www.VietnamWomensMemorial.org. Donations to the Vietnam Women’s Memorial which support these and other programs are always appreciated.
