In Their Own Words
Each Memorial Day and Veterans Day, the stories of the women cast in bronze come to life as veterans and other American patriots share their experiences “in their own voices.”
Through verse, prose and music, a tapestry of stories is woven by women who served in support of the Armed Forces: nurses, administrators, air traffic controllers, journalists, women who entertained troops as members of the USO and Red Cross, women who served in a variety of occupations around the world. Men who knew their sisters in war and have partnered with them to ensure healing and peace also share their stories in a compelling and educational way.
Children and families, women and men, Veterans and their friends are invited to attend this commemmoration of the sisters and daughters and mothers and wives who served during the Vietnam era.
Storytellers are featured every 15-30 minutes near the site of the Vietnam Womens’s Memorial (at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial) beginning at 8:30am and concluding at 12pm.
VWMF extends an invitation to women who have served during all wars to participate in this educational program.
